‘Capturing the dance movements created 3D sculptures – your body becomes the brush. The beauty of a human body becomes visible. The hologram can be seen as a stage – they tell a story of the movement and the visual impact of Diana Vishneva’s creations. It is a prototype of the future performances and art where reality merges with projections. Transcend time through movement. Transcend space through holograms – the reality is a projection.’
