Visual language and technique in the creative holographic domain
The language of art describes the palette of techniques used for the expression of content. These techniques offer layers of creative possibilities for analog, digital and emerging hybrid formats for holographic artistic expression. This paper describes the creative techniques used in my analog holographic art. It is presented as it evolved, within a historical context. The limitations and opportunities of studio time, recording materials and processing regimes are discussed as elements which are relevant to the evolution of these holograms. Early techniques associated with "hands on" holography are described and the relation to content is explored. Art works created between 1979 – the early 2000’s are described.

There is a fundamental relationship in Holography between the form or appearance of a Hologram and the optical components that technically created it. Yet, the instruments that we use to transform the light into holograms, remain invisible & unacknowledged. As a holographic artist, I am exploring a way to pay homage the interdependence between these form-shaping instruments and the realization of the images that result.
I have designed and build several optical holography studios. Within these studios, component systems were built with the form and function of the final hologram in mind. As well, I am a “hands on” holographer and this has given me an intimate awareness of the effect minute changes in the optics will have on the final image. This relationship will be reviewed and connected to the peculiarities & potentials of the art holograms I have created.

Photometric evaluation of holograms
M. Melissa Crenshaw
Methods for specifying and evaluating light-based media and devices have become commonplace in various industries such as the professional luminaire industry. This is not the case with Holography as there are no standards that address specifying, evaluating, and displaying holograms. If methods are considered, then standards can be addressed. Three measurable characteristics of holograms are considered. This paper reviews Kelvin temperature for correct color rendition, goniometry for hologram angle of view, and signal-to-noise ratios for efficiency. This paper is relevant to the independent holographer or anyone contracting a hologram facility to custom produce holograms that are reconstructed with a white point source of light. The focus of this paper is analog image / light pattern holograms for display.
