Rainbow-colored portrait (bust-shot) of video artist Nam June Paik, wearing a suit and tie; when viewer stands to left of hologram, he is shown in profile, so that his right side is visible, with his eyes closed; as viewer moves to left, he raises a handkerchief to his face and blows his nose; when viewer moves to far right, his face becomes distorted.
