Sculpture with hologram panels 160 cm tall and 21 cm wide
An abstract space forms across multiple hologram panels. Virtual windows within physical panels produce a fragmentation and continuity of shapes. Colors combine and intersect charging the space around and between the holograms.
‘My art work is mostly concerned with physical colours and the iridescent hues due to the diffraction of light.’
