Setsuko Ishii Gift from Future optical sculpture with 64 hologram panels

Setsuko Ishii

Gift from Future (2005)

“Art exists at the border between the ordinary and the extraordinary. Light is something that essentially cannot be bent, nor shaped, nor even held. Yet in holography light can be molded like clay, or woven like thread. Through holography I want to create a certain set of circumstances in an environment of light and space. I hope that the experience of this environment can stimulate new ideas and feelings in the viewer.”

– Setsuko Ishii, 2005 quote from Tokyo Times interview by Vivienne Kenrick
