Named collection: Holography Collection
Object type: hologram
Maker: Perry, Hart
Date made: 1977
Materials: 360° integral stereogram (Multiplex); film
Measurements: 9 1/2 in x 50 in
Nomenclature: fine art
Three separate sheets of film that when adhered together form one continuous image (each sheet is a 120-degree hologram); film is placed in a special rotating structure. As structure rotates, viewer sees an abstract, 3-D, computer-generated geometric form made up of hundreds on lines, which floats and changes shape as it moves; 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.
