Aesthetic Holographers and Their Art
This chapter describes the third, but least populous, group of holographers: artists. The earliest holographic artists collaborated with scientists and included Bruce Nauman, Margaret Benyon (in the UK) and Harriet Casdin–Silver (in Boston). A second generation was inspired by the artisanal schools of holography during the 1970s. By the 1980s, aesthetic holographers were expanding thanks to large public exhibitions and a cottage industry for holograms. They were shunned by mainstream art critics, however, and did not emerge at all in the Soviet Union, although holograms were widely used there to reproduce national treasures and artworks. The chapter explores this new visual aesthetic and how it was promoted.
