Holography's Enthusiasts at MIT Museum

Holography's Enthusiasts presents an opportunity to view selected works from the MIT Museum's holography collection, the largest and most comprehensive holography collection in the world.

The exhibition includes the first white-light transmission hologram, Motif I, by MIT Professor Stephen Benton. White-light transmission holography, also called "rainbow" holography, made widespread commercialization of holography possible and stimulated artists to see holography as a new artistic medium.

The exhibition also includes Liberty, by Jody Burns and Jerry Miller, a holographic stereogram of the Statue of Liberty made using film footage captured from a helicopter. Dennis Gabor, recipient of the 1971 Nobel Prize in Physics for his work on holography, is the subject of a laser transmission hologram by G. Robert Schinella.
