This paper describes a series of holograms resulting from my experimentation and research over the last four years. In the process of making these pieces I began to articulate and explore methods of reconstructing scenes through holography.

While traditionally holography records a ‘whole’ optical field, my interest is in capturing other dimensional relationships, particularly the connections made between different perspectives and temporal patterns, with holographics.

This artistic inquiry involves developing techniques of sampling, compiling and recording images into holograms. To illustrate the development of my methodology I will to refer to a number of holograms which are largely self portraits – depicting my relationship to and navigation of the urban environment.
