Holographic Poetics Series

“Between Light and Letter” is the second work in the Holographic Poetics Series. The first in the series, “3 Words,” will be shown for the first time on December 5th and 6th 2008 for Inspiring Collaborations: a Symposium in Honour of Barbara Godard.

“3 Words” is a 2×2.5 foot laser lit pulse hologram. It acts as a window frame onto a 4x4x4 foot scene of suspended letters in suggestive relation. As the “reader” moves his or her body across the frame to view different angles and elements of the scene, the letters move in parallax, at times obscuring one another, at times revealing phonetic and associative elements of their arrangement in space-time.

Dates for display: October 5-16, 2009

Opening Reception: October 8, 4-6 p.m. (in conjunction with the Ambi-Valent Objects Reception)

Location: Special Projects Gallery, Joan & Martin Goldfarb Centre for Fine Arts, Main Floor.

Contact: For more information, please contact Natasha Myers (nmyers@yorku.ca)
