Understanding Holograms

From Lasers to Light Fields – Past/Present/Future
an online course by Linda Law

Art Holograms by Margaret Benyon; Rudie Berkhout; Ana Maria Nicholson and Sam Moree

This course will prepare you for the coming revolution in Digital Holograms. Laser Holograms (so-called because they require lasers in order to create them) have been with us for nearly 60 years, but it has taken until now for technology to evolve to the point where digital holographic displays are practical. We are at the beginning of a new era of holographic imaging and this course is designed to educate you about what is already here and to prepare you for what is to come.

Starting May 5, 2021

Designed as a 6 session course, each with 3 hours of recordings and extensive additional material. You will also be able to join a network where further questions can be asked and students can exchange ideas with each other. The course fee is $250.

The course instructor Linda Law is a holographic and digital artist involved in the field of Holography since 1975 – in holographic research, fine art, curating exhibitions of holograms, teaching classes and writing about this astonishing medium. Her early days in research at NY Institute of Technology (where she was the assistant director of the Center for Optics, Lasers and Holography) exposed her to the cutting edge of Computer Graphics Research at NYIT’s Computer Graphics Lab and began a journey towards working with what is now being manifested as Digital Holograms.
