Laser Vision

Major collection: Holography
Named collection: Holography Collection
Object type: hologram
Maker: Holex Corporation
Date made: 1979
Materials: white light transmission; film
Measurements: 5 in x 6 in
Nomenclature: commercial
Classification: holograms

Translucent plastic divided into 3 horizontal fields; top and bottom fields contain the words ":Laser Vision:"; bottom field's letters are upside down so there is really no top or bottom to the work--it can be viewed either way; middle field gives off a diffraction grating pattern when held up to light; prisms reflect off the light source, creating a sparkling, filter-like effect.

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.
