Title: Three Spaces

Date: 2015

Materials: Digital hologram, video camera, video monitor, and shuttered theatrical spotlight

Size: Hologram 29 x 29 cm

Installation: Gallery floor

Notes: Produced within the Summer Lodge 2015 residency at Nottingham Trent University.
29th June - 10th July 2015.

The first iteration of this installation which displays a live feed of the image from a digital hologram to a video monitor.  Part of the 'peripheral view' group of works, it attempts to dislocate the viewer's initial connection with the holographic image. 


The hologram, normally displayed like 'traditional' graphics on a wall is place, here, flat onto the gallery floor and illuminated from above by a framed theatrical spotlight.  This tight rectangle of light illuminates the dark surface of the holographic recording.

On entering the installation viewers are presented with both this dark floor-based rectangle (with no discernible image visible) and a live video image of the hologram shown on a cubic video monitor.

The video monitor is illuminated by a small light source to generate a distinct shadow (a dark representation of a cube) onto the space in front of the screen.



The image in the holographic rectangle is visible when standing close to the surface of the hologram where three levels of 'surface', each punctured by a rectangular 'hole', can be seen.
