Named collection: Holography Collection
Object type: hologram

Date made: 1987
Materials: reflection hologram; glass

Multiple-exposure, green interferogram made by pulsed laser, showing a bust shot of a bald man with several earrings; interference fringe patterns from movement show on man's body, giving the man a tattooed appearance; when one moves vertically up and down the hologram, the man's eyes open and close, sometimes one at a time; creator's signature and date appear at bottom.

Please note that due to the unique challenges of holography as a medium, high-resolution digital images are not available for most items in the holography collection. Please contact us for more information on reproducing images of holograms.
