SPACE:LIGHT at The Plaxall Gallery,
The SPACE:LIGHT program grew from working with artists in the HoloCenter studio residency program. In 2019 I curated the exhibition SPACE:LIGHT that featured artists working with light at The Plaxall Gallery. New works by nineteen artists were featured along with three artist performances.
Maximus Clarke ∙ Barak Chamo ∙ Wen-Han Chang ∙ Xiaowei Chen ∙ Valeria Divinorum ∙ Lori Horowitz ∙ Lara Knutson ∙ Raisa Nosova ∙ Steve Pavlovsky ∙ Jonathan Sims ∙ Julia Sinelnikova ∙ George Stadnik ∙ Joey Steigelman ∙ Tracy Abbott Szatan ∙ Kazue Taguchi ∙ Pierre-Luc Vaillancourt ∙ Bryan Whitney ∙ Sangjun Yoo ∙ Jason Yung

Holographic Embodiment at the HoloCenter on Governors Island
The confluence of the physical and virtual body is explored by artists
working with holographic media. The artworks create collective, emotive
and fragmented visions of the self in states of coexistence. Light and
information are shaped using various techniques to suggest the chimeral
nature of consciousness and identity.

IRIDESCENCE is the cumulative exhibition of artworks produced through The Holographic Art Grant, funded by the Hologram Foundation (Paris) in partnership with Center for the Holographic Arts (New York). Each artist selected through the international competition produces a major new holographic artwork.

Artist Photonics, HoloCenter on Governors Island, 2018
Holographic memories and explorations of optical dynamics come to the HoloCenter for ‘Artist Photonics’. Shaping, twisting, and splitting light, artists create work where the photons are the medium. Imagery is carved by luminance, color and space hold form.

Ripple Effect, HoloCenter on Governors Island, 2017
The sensation of a ripple brings our awareness to change. The rhythm of energy, force, time and space shape our consciousness and shift reality into new configurations. Change is woven into perception and unwoven into narratives. Detecting ripples we feel the unseen, we reconstruct the past from the impact of events. Our bodies use ripples to probe reality, and create ripples to change it.
The holographic image is created from rippled patterns of interference within the print. Light is shaped by the captured structure as it travels through the hologram. The holographic scene perpetually reconstructed.

Five project created through artist collaborations between
Dreaming out the window thoughts unfold into the scene, anchoring and shifting the emotive landscape.
The artists in this exhibition explore relationships within imagery – the
connections, resonance and disjunctions of perception. The emotive forces within each installation are unfolded by the viewer. Whilst not designed to be immersive, these installations play on the individual viewer’s embodied palette of sense to
express something beyond the image.
Through questioning the nature of the image a dimension of between is established.
There is a tension in merging the physical and projected – in Walton and Hassett’s collaboration this heightens the characters severed connection. In contrast, the
We’re all looking holograms blend multiple perspectives, compressing the between to create a collective impression and abstraction of the environment through relational symmetries.
The installations manipulate but also emphasise the agency of experience by creating restricted encounters. The expansive space, captured and created in Couchet’s video loops, allows the imagination to escape the confines of the passenger – an experience shared by both artist and audience. The participant is also confined when peering into one of Ender’s stereo-viewers, while simultaneously being invited through the image and into an infinite visual space.
The symmetries and disjunctions between the imagery and installation enable a reading of the artists’ work. The holographic images and soundscape of The Crossing play off each other and with the viewer’s movement, encouraging participants to create their own path and build an impression of the scene.
Working with technology and technique these artists create optical and sonic imagery that oscillates between the physical and virtual to explore the relational dimensions of experience.
