Wall, sculpture and master transmission holographic works were on exhibit, as well as projected stereoscopic 3D video art and legacy (analog) video displays (CRT/LCS glasses). Many of these holographic works and 3D works have been internationally exhibited.

3D works by invited guest artists Rick Gibson (Lenticular 3D portraits), and Jerry Oldaker and John Hart (3D Fractals in HD 3D) were on exhibit, including historical and contemporary stereoscopic 3D works. Cameras and viewing devices from the 1800's/1900's (from the collection of Gary Cullen) completed and contextualized the works in exhibition.

Installation by the artists, with assistance from Rick Gibson, Peter Lowry, Kari Cullen, Vern Moen, Anne Popperwell, Darius Razutis, Agasel Lindawan, Stefan Razutis, Quin James and Alex Razutis.

CONTEXT: In October 2010 an exhibition of pioneering works by Vancouver artists-holographers Al Razutis, Melissa Crenshaw and Gary Cullen was presented 'for free' (and without government grants or external curators) to Vancouver generations largely unfamiliar with what had been created in their city from the early seventies onwards. This work was largely unknown to Vancouver in the recent decades and was not found in city (and Canadian) collections or historical acknowledgements.
The originally proposed (by Razutis) title of the show was 'AMNESIA, but that was changed to the more poetic 'Deja Vu'. The show was attended by hundreds of this and next gen people. It then vanished, and throughout 2011-2012 there has hardly been a 'murmur' about these 3D expressions. Vancouver pioneering has vanished from the cultural radar, until the next gen proves the amnesiacs wrong.

REDEFINING 3D IN SPACE AND TIME: FROM DAGUERRE TO HOLOGRAPHY TO HD 3D FRACTALS

"Imagine an exhibition where the past of the 1800's and 1900's arrives in the same time and place as holography and stereoscopic HD 3D, where Daguerre's 3D photos, holography, and 3D fractals can be experienced, as if 'informing' each other's content and forms. This exhibition, rather than being a conflation of history, suggests our capacity to embrace 'vision and desire to see more' implicates a thirst for the intangible made real through imaging art and technologies. This exhibition hopes to stimulate new imaginations of the real, and new works in light, and perhaps some new directions will be based on the startling juxtapositions and insights found in this show.

"The artists are the curators of 'Deja Vu', and while the exhibition is fleeting and held only for one week, and the locale is Vancouver, Canada, where many of these works in holography, stereo 3D, lenticular 3D, stereoscopic 3D video were pioneered and created, the conjunction of all these previously disparate moments in time and space has found a 'moment in time' where some clarity and a insight of the future can arise."
- Al Razutis (2010)
