Title The emergent holographic scene : compositions of movement and affect using multiplexed holographic images
Author(s) Mrongovius, M

Abstract A conventional hologram records the view into a single space and can reconstruct this virtual window so that a viewer can peer-around the optically recorded scene. The multiplex process divides the virtual perspective window of the hologram, so that a viewer moving around the hologram perceives a composition of views, establishing a holographic scene. This research explores the potential of movement and affect in the composition of multiplex holographic images.

Techniques were developed for anchoring multiple perspectives into holographic structures by connecting points of visual attention and lines of movement, through successive experiments in the design and production of holograms. This led to explorations of the role of bodily movement and multiple perspectives in the conceptualisation of place. Techniques developed included coupling the viewer’s movement to the action or movement involved in recording the holographic image, often through the visual suggestion of an embodied protagonist and their camera. These compositions heightened an awareness of the perceiving body – both in the process of capturing images for a holographic scene and during the viewer's exploration of this scene.

The research led to an experimental practice where the composition of holographic images and their installation in physical spaces highlighted and affected the disjunctions and fusions between different systems of perception in the embodied act of looking. These projects contribute to the field of holography by developing ways of designing holographic compositions with spatial dynamics and virtual movements, and connecting these holographic scenes to a physical, embodied context. As such the research explores how embodied awareness as well as relational structures of multiple visual perspectives can shape an extended sense of movement and space.
