One of 3 glass panels that form a triptych showing one continuous scene of a futuristic art gallery; this panel consists of 3 pieces of glass laminated together; image shows a large room with columns; a male figure can be seen on the far left; a few floating cubes of light appear around the room, with an odd-shaped object floating noticeably in the upper center portion of the panel (perhaps representing holograms--see Note below); floor of room covered with shadows; rainbow-colored image; title and creator's signature appear at bottom of glass.
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.
