Title: Oblique Lean

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.


Oblique Lean is one of a series of pieces developed during the Summer Lodge 2015 residency which takes place each year within the fine art studios at Nottingham Trent University. 

Part of the 'peripheral view' group of works, it attempts to dislocate the viewer's initial connection with the holographic image.


Much of our visual engagement with our environment is 'peripheral' - images and sounds just 'outside' of our field of focus. 

When approaching the floor-based installation the image of the illuminated hologram is displayed live on a cubic, cathode ray video monitor.  The structure of the shuttered light, which illuminates both hologram, monitor and floor, reflects the spatial structure found within the hologram.

Moving through the exhibition space an observer walks into the viewing zone of the holographic image which displays its dimensional image.  At this point the live video image is no longer visible.
