300 sq. ft. (27,87 m²) installation
1989 / 1992

One installation in a series of works resulting from research into the current state of solar technology at the time. A meditation on holography and its role as a bridge to a possible future, where the ingenuity of light would be one of the keystones to environmentally sound modes of energy production.
Each of the sculptural objects in the installation interactively uses dichromate holograms drawing the viewer into a dialogue about our current modes of energy production in relation to the health of the environment, and a degrading atmosphere.
