Abstract, multi-colored work showing different geometric shapes and patterns on different levels that recede into the distance; excellent 3-D effect; hologram is on a thick smoked glass plate, roughly trapezoidal in shape; it is adhered to a larger, thick, clear glass plate; this clear plate is round with a squared section cut out at the bottom so that it may fit into a customized tripod; 3 screws through 3 holes in the bottom of the glass allow the work to be fixed to the tripod; title, edition number (1/7), creator's name, and date are etched into bottom of holographic glass.
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.
