Object type: hologram
Maker: Multiplex Moving Holograms; Claudius, Peter
Date made: 1976
Materials: 360° integral stereogram (Multiplex); film
Measurements: 9 1/2 in x 51 in
Three sheets of film adhered together with clear tape to form one continuous image (each sheet is a 120-degree hologram); film is placed in a special rotating structure. Viewer sees a nude woman in a kneeling/squatting position; as structure rotates, the woman's position rotates 360°; at first, she stares at viewer with her head craned slightly backward, her right hand on a breast, her right hand in her crotch; as structure rotates, she straightens her head and moves her right hand to her mouth, suggestively placing her fingers in her mouth; after her position changes so that her back is to the viewer, she arcs her body backwards and moves her hands to her breasts; rainbow-colored image.
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.
