I use the multiple exposures in shadowgrams
to create images that play out to different points of view. As
you move around a piece and change viewpoints, not only does
the colouring change for you, but you will see some images dissolve
into other images. I use the holograms as parts of sculpture
in an attempt to treat light as a material. While the holographic
elements are constantly changing, the physical elements in the
sculpture remain static.
The materials in the sculpture physically
define a space for the holographic forms. A the same time, the
holographic elements give life to the static, physical, materials
by constantly changing their form and colour inside that space.
Recently, I have been using cast glass
as the counterpoint to the holographic light. The combination
mingles forms you experience only by touch with forms that can
only be seen and not touched. Experiencing this, you might feel
that one perception is no more real than another.
