White light transmission holographic stereogram from pulsed-laser masters. Setsuko Ishii uses fabric and the movement of her own body to give viewers a new way of seeing the human condition. Incorporating more than 12 different pulsed-laser master holograms into a single image with more than 20 channels, she creates a holographic stereogram of frozen moments, making the audience conscious of space in a way that is entirely different from their everyday experience.
