Dichromate hologram, pumice crete, motor, turkey feather; partial view
1989 / 1992

"A Seed" : A 5 ft (1,52 m) diameter pumice crete dish, reminiscent of both a satellite parabolic and a metaté (a tool used to transform corn into flour) holds in its center a circular dichromate
hologram which slowly turns causing a transformation of colored light on a white feather suspended above. The hologram is made from an optic that bends light to a focal point out in
space, and as a result, when lit, splits the white light into its spectrum. Instead of the hologram recording an object, it captures only light itself.
