Dora Tass, Holographic Light Artist.
"Through my work, I strive to record a three-dimensional topography of pure light, revealing a window into the elusive realms of the light-space-time paradox. Luminous volumes of light became tangible inviting the viewer into a multi-dimensional experience. The physicality of earthly materials becomes nonmaterial and nonessential as one becomes enthralled by the tactile quality of this kind of three-dimensional holographic light. I play tricks on the senses, destabilizing one’s perception: each hologram has different perspectives encrypted within it, which change based on where the viewer stands in relation to each piece. Luminous liquid volumes hypnotize provoking visual and cognitive short-circuits"
