25 February 2014 The place for performance in the digital holographic space
Author Affiliations +
In this series of digital art holograms and lenticulars, we are examining different kinds of movement inside the digital holographic space explored by Elizabeth Sandford-Richardson, a visual performance artist. During the process of capturing the image, we used the HoloCam Portable Light System, equipped with Canon and Nikon cameras positioned at different heights and angles, in order to improve the rendering of the holographic space. Based on the “Performativity of Performance Documentation” a notion introduced by Philip Auslanderi we revisit some authors that have been working in the “theatrical” practise, mainly in photography, adding the possibility of movement in 3D space. We must realise that the movement of the viewer in front of a digital holographic image creates the performance that he/she is looking at. We should consider the physical space, outside the hologram, and this kind of “performance acts”, also part of the work. In summary, we propose a reflection on the digital holographic space, time, movement and its place in contemporary art.
