Three sheets of film adhered together with clear tape to form one continuous image (each sheet is a 120-degree hologram); film is placed in a special rotating structure [see Notes below]; as structure rotates, viewer sees a rainbow-colored movie clip showing a claymation sequence from the film `Closed Mondays' in which a machine/computer with a human-like face (with large quivering lips) that sits in a living room (paintings in background) morphs into other objects, including a large tomato with a human face, Albert Einstein, and a television showing a news reporter on the screen; the images on the third sheet of film are hard to discern.

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.
