In order to better understand the nature of holography as a visual medium and in particular to perceive the role and function of holography in contemporary culture, it is useful to look at holograms as they are represented in fiction, where they are depicted in an idealized form, more clearly expressing the human needs and desires which are integrally bound up with the medium, but which are not so clearly discerned in a study of the actual medium itself. This paper constitutes a work-in-progress study of holograms as they have been represented in popular fiction.
