Hologram appears as a large strip of negative film; the middle `negative' takes up the largest portion of the hologram; in this section, a `moving' image is shown; as one moves one head vertically, a scene appears in which a subway train pulls into a subway station while 2 men walk along the platform; at the bottom of the negative strip, the negative numbers change as the scene changes; in the left `negative' panel, which is cut off, one sees another view of the train pulling in/out of the station; the right panel, also cut off, shows another man walking along the platform; the work resembles a holographic stereogram, though it actually appears to have been made through multiple exposures.

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.
