Holographic Messages with C Bangs, Greg Matloff and multiple collaborators from the Space community
We proposed that holographic structures could enhance the design of Light Sails – both solar and laser driven. While this research is being conducted the Holographic Messages project seeks to engage public imagination by including holograms containing images and information with the probes we send into Space.
Our first holograms on a Cornell Tech Alpha Project ‘CubeSat’ satellites carrying an experimental solar sail are schedule to be launched from the International Space Station in 2021.

Draw Within Water with Sky Rolnick (Jump into the Light) and Alon Grinsphoon (echoAR).
Tools to enable people to engage and create with immersive technology were developed. For the Draw Within Water collaborative experience participants draw in virtual space and can populate the underwater scene with artist drawn sea creatures. Virtual sea creature could be taken home on QR code stickers using echoAR platform.
The first iteration of this project Draw Within Water included music composed by Keith Patchel and artwork by Spacer Arts, Lydia Powell, Jessup, Alexandra Patz and Ioana Pioaru. Installed at the HoloCenter on Governors Island in 2019.

The Emergent Holographic Scene
My doctoral research focused on the affect of cross-referenced movement in viewing spatially animated holographic images.
Relationships between the movement of the photographer and movement of the viewer were used to produced a sense of dynamic shaping. I considered my holographic images as mappings of a hyperlinked terrain. The holographic scene emanating from anchored visual elements, around symmetries or along paths. The dynamic and spatial qualities of the holographic scene emerged by drawing on the viewer’s perceptual experience. The activity of enfolding and unfolding connected perspectives became an expressive form in my practice of capture, composition and installation design.

Research into the roles of avatars and embodied reference
The Collective Image
Considering impression from multiple perspectives to created holographic scenes.
This research has resulted in a number of projects as well as seminars with students at the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne, Germany.
