The image is a non-physical and unsubstantial
phenomenon. Holography is a
technology which makes the un-palpable image possible to visualise.
With this media technology, I tried to visualise transient Japanese
images. Since cherry flowers bloom very briefly, and then scatter,
have become a symbol of the ephemeral beauty at the heart of
Falling Cherry Blossoms was produced
from several pulse-laser master plates of falling petals, then
double-exposed for the finished rainbow hologram. The resulting
projected virtual image floats in front of the eyes.
Using master plates, as an ideal optical
lens, I hope to develop new
spatial, spiritual and aesthetic images which have never been
around us or in this transient world.
