I look at holography as a dance of
balance - a Rosetta Stone - between Art and Science. The Primitive
and the Sophisticated. The Past and the Future. A balancing beam
of Light and Dark.
Working with diverse material - metal,
stone, neon, plastic, paint and glass, the sculpture echoes in
a holographic window. With my work I use stark, almost symbolic
sculpture as a diving board to tumble into a holographic graffiti
At times the hologram is an arm of
an image in search of its sculptural body, or the sculpture is
a directing arrow to illusionary imagery. Other times they come
together dancing on that balancing beam.
The image time-travels across the laser
table. A black and white interference pattern is captured in
a scientific chiaroscuro on the plate. This encoded "stone"
translates reality into a dream illusion.
My imagery works in and out of focus,
becoming a peripheral, optical soup.
To capture the image, one must dance
a near-tribal two-step which can be read as a mathematical equation
forming different answers each time it is observed.
