Point Addition - Mix

Wednesday, 01 January 1986 00:00 Published in Holography

Title: Point Addition - Mix

Date: 1986

Edition: Installation

Materials: Reflection hologram on glass, wood plinth, electronic dimmers, spot lights.

Size: Installation - Galler wall and floor - Hologram H 25.4 x W 20.32cm (10 x 8 inches)

Notes: An installation produced for Space Open Studios, Hackney.
During the late 1980's Andrew Pepper occupied a Space Studio in the London borough of Hackney.  The group of artists who worked in this old industrial building organised a series of "Open Studios" to showcase.

Point Addition - Mix used a previously produced hologram (Point Addition) which was hung upside down on the studio wall.  Holograms are normally hung so that the light needed to illuminate them can be shone onto them from the ceiling.  Here, it was possible to illuminate the piece from below.

Directly in front of the piece stands a wood plinth containing three narrow beam spotlights which shine up onto the hologram and allow its recorded image to be reconstructed.  On the plinth, where visitors would normally expect to find an object (using a traditional museum/gallery display vocabulary and expectation), were there rotary control knobs.  Each allowed a corresponding spotlight to be dimmed or turned of completely.

As holograms normally require a single source of light to reconstruct their recorded image, any extra light can cause disruption to the display - often resulting in multiple images or blurring.  Here this possible disruption is given to the observer who can add and subtract extra light to the display.  The result is a multiplication of the luminous 'dots' help in the holographic recording.  In effect the gallery visitor is given control and an opportunity to 'mix' points in space and therefore 'construct' their own 'structure' in real time and in three-dimensions.

Deep Shadows?

Monday, 01 January 2001 20:00 Published in Solo Exhibitions

2001

Gallery 286, London, UK.

This solo exhibition included a site specific installation "Sight Lines" as well as a number of new wall and floor works sown along side pieces from the 1980's and 90's

"Sight Lines" spanned one wall of the gallery space and was made up of 9 rusted metal plates, each containing a small, circular, hologram.  

The plates hang from the gallery ceiling and are each illuminated by one of the spotlights normally used to display reflection holograms on the wall.  In the location were visitors might expect to view holograms, on the wall at eye height,  thin digital photographs of each metal plate are displayed.

The hanging structure prohibits close access to the wall images.
