Trick of the Light: 12 Shining Works of Holographic Art

3D Holographic Glass Paintings by Yosman Botero

Hologram Art Botero

Another artist producing holographic images using more traditional media, Yosman Botero paints on plexiglas sheets, using layers to transform each work into a holographic simulation. “In the series Dissolutions, I attempt to expand painting towards space. By dividing the pictorial elements that together create a whole painting, I create a realistic atmosphere that pushes the boundaries of traditional painting. What I truly search for in my landscapes is the ambiguity of the representation of a city. It could be any city in the world; one that anyone could relate to in their own everyday life.”

Materialization: Transmission Holography by Ikuo Nakamura

Hologram Art Nakamura

Holographic art innovator Ikuo Nakamura of uses both stereoscopic techniques to produce moving images, and three-dimensional HDTV. He has created some interesting holographic hybrids combining computer graphics with video images, and is currently focusing on laser-transmitted holograms.

RabbitHoles: State of the Art Digital Motion Holograms

Hologram Art RabbitHoles

“State-of-the-art digital motion holograms” by ten artists were displayed in a showing at Gnomon Gallery in Hollywood, California to promote the RabbitHoles 3D technology which “display 1280 frames of full-color, 3D imagery with up to ten seconds of fluid and seamless animation on a completely flat surface.”

Holography by Al Razutis

Hologram Art Razutis

Multimedia artist Al Razutis creates all sorts of holographic displays and 3D images using stereoscopic 3D video and other techniques, pioneering the field since the 1970s. See his body of work – and many images that explain the process in detail, if you’re curious – at his site,
