Several years ago I produced a hologram using the pulsed laser at the Center for Holographic Art, New York to explore an idea illustrated by the ancient Hindu story of Indra’s Net. The optically active model created a secondary set of images surrounding the reconstruction source. Upon close examination, the elements of the objects formed a complex Gabor hologram centered in an array of multi-referenced images. The multiple layers of images suggest the infinite reflections of the Indra’s Net story and parallel both ancient and contemporary concepts of complexity. This paper will present new works using holography to explore the paradoxical nature of light.
