Black & White (Achromat), Miniatures (optically reduced images)
The following Holograms were created by optically reducing the figures from pulse laser Masters. The reduced images are approximately half the size of the original, full scale images in the masters. These holograms are illuminated from the back of the hologram and are technically called white light transmission (WLT) holograms. The reduction process allows for the images to be achromat, or black and white with some intentional spectral or colour blurring.

Ladies Travelling Optics Vanity (Hologram Boxes) series
The following vanity cases were designed to hold holograms, both created for these cases and taken from my older works. In addition to the holograms, each vanity holds tools of the trade such as protractors, lenses, mirrors and even the ever necessary Allen wrench. The inspiration for these is taken from the elaborate cases seen in museums which people would have carried on their Grand Tour, in days gone by.

Mixed Media, incorporating off the shelf holographic foil
Spectratek's holographic foil, paper fans, hardware store flashing and copper pipe provided the ingredients for the following works. Most of these were created in the early 2000's. These elements were installed in series as large wall pieces as shown below.
