This is a holographic movie I was commissioned to create for the Philadelphia Stock Market. The stock traders are seen floating inside a clear cylinder actually trading stocks on the floor of the market.

We also want to thank and say goodbye to another Summer intern, Alexandra, as she heads off for school at Cal Arts. She was incredibly helpful during her time here coming up with unique solutions to some challenging issues as we worked on custom commissions. She was great dealing with the public and in the laser lab. She'll be sorely missed. We expect great things from her in the years to come.

Today was the last day of Simon's internship here. Simon is studying architecture and came here from Vienna, Austria. During his internship he got to assist with a commission for the Warhol Museum, shoot a hologram for a German client, build a custom designed portable hologram display, assist on tours, and make a hologram of his own design.

As most of you know, my studio in the heart of Manhattan was hit pretty hard by the lockdown and pandemic in general. I'd like to thank those of you here who helped keep us going. If you're in New York please stop in so I can personally thank you and give you the VIP look at the Holographic Studios. This week I finally paid off the last of the money I owed from the lockdown. In the last month, I've worked with three major art museums reproducing holograms in their collections, shot four portraits holograms, worked on three other projects, ran tours, and taught classes. Holography is still very much alive here in our 44th year in this historic location (240 East 26th Street, NY, NY10010).

This is an ad I shot for Radio Shack with my friend Isaac Asimov back in 1983 with my water cooled 8 watt Argon Ion laser. Note the power of their top of the line computer: a full 64 K (yes, that was a K)!

Five years ago today, this piece that Insider did on my studio came out. Currently, it's had over 3.5 million views.

Come and see this and other amazing holograms when you take a tour of the Holographic Studios. It's incredible how deep this image appears, considering how thin the piece actually is! www.holographer.com/tours

The Andy Warhol Museum just reached out to me to let me know that my portrait hologram of Andy will be featured in their upcoming exhibition "Andy Warhol’s Social Network: Interview, Television and Portraits". The show goes from September 24, 2022 through February 20th, 2023. This is the second year in a row that a museum has included my hologram of Andy in a current show. I'm humbled and honored.

In 1976, I filmed this image of the two principal dancers of the New York City Ballet, Sean Slavery and Colleen Nearly. The legendary George Balanchine co-directed the dance movement with me. It's a beautiful piece.

There are many steps and skills required to make a hologram. Before we can start in the laser lab, we often have to create sculptures, cast them, transfer them to a rigid material, and paint them. It's definitely a process. And it's magical.

We created this portrait hologram of comedian Phyllis Diller in 1987. She was our opening act when we put on a show for a meeting of the leaders of the world's stock markets at the Boca Raton Hotel and Resort in Florida.

While cleaning up I just came across this prototype hologram I created for Aerosmith back in 1977. Back then, I had recently created a hologram for music producer Jack Douglas of his logo for his company Waterfront Productions. He was a big fan of Marlon Brando's film On The Waterfront with it's climactic scene of longshoremen fighting with using their gaffer hooks as weapons. Appropriately, he used a fist holding the hook as his logo and I transferred it into a hologram. When I called the studio to deliver it, I was told that he was recording at a former monastery in Westchester, NY. After getting directions, I drove up. They had set up a temporary recording studio there. I showed everyone the hologram. One guy, who I thought was a roadie, was blown away and we landed up talking until 4 am. It turned out the guy was Steven Tyler of Aerosmith. Oddly enough, I had never heard of him or the band. It surprised him, but I think he liked the fact that we had become friends without me seeing him as a celebrity. He hired me to make this hologram in the hopes of using it as the cover of an album. Unfortunately, his manager was not on board, but I did make hundreds of holograms that they used as gifts. I can't believe I still have it. The last picture is a recent one with Jack.
