Three separate sheets of film adhered together to form one continuous image (each sheet is a 120-degree hologram); film is placed in a special rotating structure [see Notes below]; as structure rotates, viewer sees 5 people standing in a circle, facing outwards: a woman in graduating cap and gown, a man in a shirt and tie, a man with sunglasses who is pouring something from a small box into his hand (presumably drugs of some type), a construction removing his construction hat and holding a hammer (and wearing a t-shirt reading `Make our town drug free, Phoenix House'), and a man in shorts and a t-shirt shooting a basketball; as the hologram rotates, the man in shirt and tie first hands the woman her diploma and then turns to the man in sunglasses and puts his hand up in a `stop' command (presumably telling the man to stop taking drugs); the construction worker lowers his hammer, while the other man raises the basketball into a shooting position; 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.
