The spatial perspective through a hologram allows for a view into a dimensional scene. The holographic scene is explored by the viewer's movement - this moving around becoming a key aspect of the image experience. In this lecture artist and designer Dr Martina Mrongovius describes different techniques of holographic imaging and how holograms can make us aware of the nature of light and our own perception.
Creating spatially animated holographic scenes Martina Mrongovius’ work investigates the emergent psychophysical experience of multiple and moving perspectives. She uses hundreds of photographs and video in her holographic scenes to capture the intertwined dynamics of an urban gaze.
Her exhibitions present conceptual experiments with holography. The role of the camera and hologram shaping perspective became the focus of her practice, with the exhibition ‘Explorations of the Holographic Gaze’ (Gallery 175, Seoul 2010) presenting holograms that linked and transformed the movement of the viewer to a visually suggested protagonist. This body of work developed into a doctoral thesis and exhibition ‘The Emergent Holographic Scene’ (Spatial Information Architecture Laboratory, RMIT University / PostX gallery, Ghent, 2011) and her current exhibition 'Enfolded Light' at Direktorenhaus in Berlin, 1-17 November, 2013
Dr Mrongovius is the Director of the Center for the Holographic Arts (Holocenter) and an assistant professor at the Academy of Media Arts, Cologne. She works with holography studios around the world to develop their facilities, teach workshops and produce artwork.
