1998 was a big year for me: I had a one-person exhibition at Gallery NAGA, Boston, followed by a huge retrospective at the magnificent, newly expanded DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park in Lincoln, Massachusetts, USA, which ran from September 26th, 1998 to January 3, 1999. I was also included in 2 group shows of considerable importance in New York and Connecticut.

Reviews of my work have been very positive; indeed, quite overwhelming, and best of all, I am happy with my figurative, life-sized images. These allow me to deal with the issues of mortality, sexuality, identity, feminism/humanism, socio-politics, psychoanalysis, and a new emphasis on aging. If this sounds like too much, for me it is all integrated.

My installations include holograms; they are holographic installations. They are technological only because the medium of holography is technological.

The pencil is also technological.

Holography in the late 20th century? I have always said that the art of this time will emanate from the laboratory. It is happening.

In the 21st century - - WATCH OUT!


Harriet Casdin-Silver spoke in Defining Traditions 1969 - 1996 and was presented with a lifetime achievement award for her outstanding contribution to the field of creative holography
