IMAGINATION PROJECT | HOLOGRAM
Artistic Interpretation: 'Hologram'
Budapest-born Dennis Gabor patented the first technique for creating holograms in the UK in 1947. His breakthrough was to find a way to record and reconstruct the 3D light pattern of an object. It took until 1964 and the invention of the laser for the first hologram to be produced and nowadays the most common example is the white dove used on the back of millions of bank cards.
Tasked by the UK Foreign Office's Great for Imagination Campaign to artistically interpret key patents throughout history to date. A project that spanned 2017 collaborating with the wonderful Ted Humble Smith.
