We present artists from around the world at the seasonal HoloCenter on Governors Island, pop-up HoloCenter | ON CANAL and with other venue partners. The HoloCenter collaborates with the Hologram Foundation in Paris to provide the biannual Holographic Art Grant and present the cumulative IRIDESCENCE exhibition of works produced. In collaboration with Ohio State University we offer Pulse Laser Holography workshops and residencies each year to enable artists to learn holography and make art holograms. We build collaborative links between artists, academics and industry to enable artists to develop new work. The Space:Light program in New York gives artists the space, expertise and facilities to experiment, create and present installations with optical and spatial media. The program includes artists-led and technology-driven workshops aimed at extending and sharing creative expression with light and imaging. Our education programs combine art, science and technology. We make holograms with school groups and invite families to participate in Explore Light activities. Through exhibitions and publications we promote artists and advocate creative and informed voices in technology driven art.

Applications are now open for the Southwood Holographics AIR

This studio in mid-hudson NY specializes in stereogram holograms aka multiplex or intergral holograms - that's where you take a sequence of photos and combine them into a hologram to synthesize space and/or create animation.

Thanks to an award from the National Endowment for the Arts we can support one artist this year. Head to the HoloCenter website or @southwood.holographics to ask questions and apply.

Eric Leiser, LASER SUN 2021

Transmission holograms laser illuminated during golden light.

“I wanted to experiment with toroidal spirals in the laser light with
either fog, smoke or steam near my bathroom window. My wifi was
unreliable indoors; living near the water, so I went outside and waded in the actual Long Island Sound to try out some optical diffraction ideas with the laser. Later in my heavily steamed up bathroom I was able to capture the toroidal spiral through the laser light though only live without documentation. I’ve seen spiraling with larger lasers and fog machines and I’m fascinated with light revealing weather systems, atmospheric pressure and the torus in action. It’s important to investigate underlying assumptions of the universe.“

ROUE LIBRE collectif, La Lumière du Discoïde

Mechanized mountain, invasive flora, new space, space conquest.

In the twilight of space, a universe is pouting under discoid lights. A troop of astronauts led by psychonaut artist Pierre-Charles Jacquemin discovers a strange planet. It is made up of industrial and mechanical elements taken from the work of visual artist Axelle Labrousse and ikebanesque blooms by Jeanne Ducau. La lumière du discoïde is a proposal for Light Windows 2021 by HoloCenter, a collaborative work of a light diorama by day and night by the three members of the Roue Libre workshop.

Maximus Clarke, ABSTRACT CONCRETE

An anaglyph 3D image sequence, rear-projected on mylar screens in 2 windows of a house in Woodhaven, Queens. The cycle of 16 images offer a rotating view of a square, empty room, with stark concrete walls — an abstracted brutalist interior. Projected onto the windows, the sequence reveals an illusory interior, a space between the physical and the virtual, the unreal and the hyperreal.

Betsy Connors, LIGHT SPRING

For the International Day of Light, the Boston Cyberarts, Boston and the Center for the Holographic Arts, New York, LIGHT WINDOWS is hosting: Light Spring, a pop up exhibit of holograms by Betsy Connors to celebrate the Covid-19 vaccine. The exhibit, in windows of the Cyberarts Gallery in Boston, is part of a group exhibit by Light Artists taking place all around the world during the weekend of May 14th – 16th 2021. Now up through Friday May 21st.

Light Spring is a montage of three-dimensional holograms of nature imagery centered around a turtle representing the vaccine. In many ancient mythologies, the turtle is represented as the creature who carries the world on its back.

Betsy Connors is an artist and educator associated with the cutting edge research and experimentation in light and holography that grew out of MIT’s Spatial Imaging Group. At MIT she lectured at the Media Lab (1990–2006) after graduating with a Master of Science degree in 1986. Connors was also MIT Museum’s first Curator of Holography. She founded her own lab and studio, ACME Holography, in the Boston area where she currently works.

Annie Stout, IN SPIRIT

In Spirit is a four- window- projection of meticulously pieced curtains which seem to infinitely flutter in their own impossible wind. They billow both outward and inward; the slow rhythms of motion, at once mesmerizing and unsettled, embody the dissonant feelings of restlessness to rejoin the wakening world, and reticence to depart the comfort and safety of quarantined sanctuary.

"I am interested in the weird experience of humanness and the complex relationship between the physical world and psychological space. Through the interdisciplinary practices of stop-motion photography, performance, projection, and more traditional object-making methods, I merge the symbolic material elements of sculptural form/ site-specificity and film loops- the “real” or physical and the “non-real” or ethereal- into experiential illusions representative of hallucination, dream, obsessive thought, and the disorienting perspicacity of everyday existence. Together my artworks are elements of an incomplete equation; they compose a fragmented and evolving philosophy in motion toward a theory of… it all." -Annie Stout, @anniemstout on IG

Linh My Truong, LA LUNA

La Luna is a projected video installation diving into the human need for exploration. With found footage of imagined moon voyages from the 1920s mixed with the hypnotic swirls of suminagashi marbling, the installation takes you on a psychedelic journey through nature and the cosmos.

Linh My Truong is an interdisciplinary artist and educator working with textiles, ceramics, and electronics. Her application of technology uses light to create immersive art installations, bringing traditional art forms into the 21st century.

Tine Barkmann, UNDERWATER

"The inspiration for the underwater hologram world is my fascination by the light when diving in the sea or looking up from underwater. This work changes and plays with its surroundings. It let’s us escape into a new world, filled with light and silence, it puts us at ease, much like gliding through water." -Tine Barkmann, @tinebarkmann on IG

SpaceCircles, EVENT HORIZON

EVENT HORIZION centers on a new everlasting everchanging geometric mindscape/landscape.

"My approach for this project is the use of sound which evoke moving images. I try to find a mixture between nature, technology and art. Due to the global sanitary crisis, the internet and virtual reality have opened a window for the imagination, and sometimes for the liberation of the mind. Adding a new layer to reality. Changing and expanding the ways we experience the universe.

This project works with geometric forms that resemble a horizon, to which we can dream into, like we dream for a better future for all, a new horizon.
This piece is conformed by two horizons one generated by the artists and another totally random/accidental. Making a parallelism between the horizon built by ourselves and the uncertain future. It shows how ever changing and everlasting the universe is." -Space Circles

Spanish multimedia artist SpaceCircles specialises in spatial perception art. His work goes in different formats such as installations, videoart in different materials, kinetic sculptures, filming and live performance. His background is technology and mathematics. Geometry and nature are his fascinations. He composes combining digital elements with natural materials which he is working into mutating spaces in closed spaces but he also working in open spaces in nature and abandoned places.
SpaceCircles in his work uses elements generated digitally and field recordings, where the simple and complex coexist.

Shipsal’aïe and Fabian Gental, Pépée’claté

Pépée’claté is a project resulting from a collaboration between two French artists, Shipsal’aïe and Fabian Gental.

Shipsal’aïe (@shipsalie on IG) is a visual artist whose creative techniques are multidisciplinary, from the pictorial practice to the digital dimension. Her dreamlike work plunges the spectator in front of chimeric creatures into a kind of phantasmagorical world. The notion of light is omnipresent in her work, as a frontier between the real and the imaginary. Color sets the tone and harmony of his projects, as the key element to decode his work.

Fabian Gental (@3615fabe on IG) is a visual artist as well as an artistic director, member of various collectives and administrator of Astre, the visual arts network in New Aquitaine. His artistic production is marked by the use of electronic tinkering and graphic software. His work focuses on the decomposition of the image where light becomes his palette.

Olivia Fero, COLOUR ME HAPPY

This installation plays with translucencies and the qualities of light. It comprises ten square frames running across the first floor of a listed building in one of the most exclusive areas of central Budapest. It is a glorious celebration of high and low art; silk organza teamed with plastic holographic films, an admittedly intricate ‘kids’ stain glass window project littered across an ornate period facade.

Each piece comprises of two separate glass panels with 20cm between them. Seen from the park below they move in and out of geometric alignment as you walk along, fragmenting and changing their colour variations in the light. They reveal and conceal different elements of their construction. The passing of the day and its weather conditions brings their own unique dimension to the piece as different colours and reflections dominate in certain conditions. It resolutely resists accepting traditional documentation. As with the Light Windows concept, art is to be experienced not witnessed on a screen. Light is impermanent, objects and these are three-dimensional objects change as you move around them in space.

The experience of making is one of inversion, balanced on ladders the artist’s perception from the interior is inside out. The interior space is transformed with colour during daylight hours and projects outwards at night, with the most interesting visions at twilight.

Colour Me Happy is intended to bring joy to post lockdown Budapest and the residents of the 1st District. It is about hope, infinite variation and delighting in the rapid changes of our perceptual experiences.

Live streaming (via @olivia_fero_artist on Instagram) at Varkert Bazaar at night from May 15th – 22nd, which can be viewed from the street at 2-4 Dobrentei Utca, Budapest 1013 in Hungary.

I know how to make them they jst don't sell well. I was in that business.I still love making them though.
medicate with art,
howdy.. I remember seeing many early holograms, a old friend of mine had taught the subject at chicago's columbia college for several years.
It was such a treat to meet you folks on Friday night! Thanks for your time, art, and company!
