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.

PA Redrawn-Line

Friday, 01 November 2013 00:00 Published in Holography

Title: PA Redrawn-Line

Date: 2013

Edition: Unique

Materials: 20 Reflection holograms on glass.

Size: Installation 100 x 20 cm (approx.)

Notes: Based on previous floor works using multiple holograms, this piece was first shown in the Drawology group exhibition at the Bonington Gallery, Nottingham, UK.


Each of the rectangular holograms are placed in a line, overlapping, covering and in a variety of orientations.

Illuminated from above by a strip of light directed vertically down onto the installation, the marks in each of the holograms appear and fade as an observer moves around the piece.

The marks (three different types) appear just above the glass plate on which they are recorded.


Coherent Points

Monday, 01 July 2013 01:00 Published in Projected Light

Title: Coherent Points

Date: 2013

Edition: Unique

Materials: Helium-neon laser scanner, rotating object, elastic, electric motor.

Size: Structure 1 x 1 x 1 M

Notes: Produced within the Summer Lodge, a research project in the fine art studios of Nottingham Trent University, School of Art and Design, Nottingham UK.
This series of experimental projections used a meter cubed structure to intercept the coherent lines of light scanned from a heliun-neon laser scanner.
The points of light 'shift' and orbit within a 1 x 1 x 1 M volume.

Deep Shadows?

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


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.
