[Computer Generated Geometric Form]

Major collection: Holography
Named collection: Holography Collection
Object type: hologram
Maker: unknown
Date made: date unknown
Materials: 360° integral stereogram (Multiplex); film
Measurements: 9 1/2 in x 54 in
Nomenclature: fine art
Classification: holograms

Long strip of holographic film that is placed in a special rotating structure [see Notes below]; as structure rotates, viewer sees a 3-D, computer-generated geometric form made up of lines, which resembles a rounded birdcage; the form, which is surrounded by a field of circles and dots that resemble stars, turns around as the entire structure rotates.

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.
