Title: Elevated Voids

Date: 2015

Materials: Digital hologram, shuttered theatrical spotlight

Size: 29 x 29 x 60 cm

Installation: Gallery floor

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

In the centre of a darkened space the rectangular hologram is displayed supported by a thin wooden plinth, illuminated directly from above by a shuttered theatrical spotlight.

Light falls onto the holographic surface, which in turn casts a shadow onto the floor below.  The installation is part of the 'peripheral view' group of works, which attempts to dislocate the viewer's initial connection with the holographic image.



From the initial approach to the work the image in the hologram is not visible, only the structural arrangement which supports the holographic space.



As the viewer changes their point of observation and moves within the vertical viewing zone of the hologram, a series of three planes, each with a rectangular space, becomes visible.

One of these virtual surfaces 'sits' directly on the picture place of the hologram's surface, one protrudes into the observer's space and the third recedes into the hologram's space.




Andrew Pepper works with projected light, holography and installation.  Based in the UK,  he has exhibited his work in group and solo exhibitions internationally and, as a senior lecturer in fine art at Nottingham Trent University, he taught on the BA (Hons) fine art course, the Master of Fine Art course and has acted as a PhD examiner for a wide range of key project-based research submissions.
