2017 PROJECTS AS PLANNED & ON THE BURNER:

4D Holographic Motion-Picture Projection Systems

Project Technical Director Al Razutis - Project Artistic Director Dr. Jianjiang Wang

Commissioned in 2013 by Lanzhou City University, China - Exhibited 2014 Lanzhou, China - 2017 Resumed in Shanghai, China

Holographic Projection see it in Stereo 3D

4D Holographic Motion-Picture Systems by Al Razutis (designer, developer) are being developed by Surreality Innovations Inc. and Visual Alchemy Studio based on original R & D by Al Razutis. This is not 'fake holography' using video projection and beamsplitters to stand in for actual holograms, these are true autostereoscopic 3D images projected in space. No screens or glasses required. This has been in the R&D works for many years. This project is covered under USA Patent Pending and we're looking for investors to bring it to market. This is true holography not pseudo and comes with color and motion and sound. It is projected in space and was demonstrated to interested parties in China in 2013 and covered in the media. Contact Al Razutis alrazutis@ymail to discuss your ivestment or partnerships interests; this is B2B and NDA will be required. Give us a call when we're acquainted.

2017: Exhibitions and Curated Projects

At least one exhibition of multi-media holography in conjunction with stereoscopic 3D art and expanded cinema projections curated by Al Razutis is planned for 2017 in Canada. Specific dates and venues will be announced later this year. Contact Al Razutis alrazutis@ymail to discuss your exhibition or purchase interests.

On display @ Visual Alchemy - multiplex motion-picture holographic stereograms and embossed holographic works in various mass mediums. This is the 'largest and most complete exhibition - collection - archives' of Multiplex holography & Sharon McCormack's works currently in existence in (all of) Canada and the US West-Coast. It is available for special exhibition, tours, installation. See McCormack Collection & Archives Terms for more information.

Experimental Films - Stereoscopic 3D films for 2017

Burning Man 2015 filmed in Stereoscopic 3D and mono by Al Razutis

Burning Man 2015 in Stereo 3D

Al Razutis went to Burning Man 2015 and filmed the art, people, and various creations and events in a spontaneous setting and documented this world-famous 'anarchist art event'. These films will be released in 2017 as a single 2D film and a number of stereoscopic 3D experimental films by Razutis. More information will be coming upon each release and date, including 2017 New Fillm Release 'Scenes from Burning Man 2015' 13 min. short subject - HD & Stereoscopic 3D.

Now by Appointment only at Visual Alchemy Studio

Collage of pictures from present holographic exhibition at Visual Alchemy installed by Al Razutis

Holographic works by Al Razutis and Sharon McCormack including samples from Sharon McCormack Collection and Archives are on display now at Visual Alchemy Studio, Saturna Island, BC Canada. Additionally, selections from the nude pulsed holographic portraits of Ron Olsen (in the collection of AR) are also on view. This exhibition is of 'white-light illumination' holography and features holographic stereograms, embossed holograms, pulsed laser originated white-light reflection holograms, and dichromate (DCG) holography and art.

Al Razutis Holography Exhibition and 3D & Holography Workshop

Film Archives of Al Razutis

In 2012 at NSA 2012 Conference 3D Con in Southern California Al Razutis presented a Holographic Art mini-exhibitioon of selected holograms and conducted a 3D & Holography workshop for National Stereoscopic Association public members. The hologrphy exhibition was presented in conjunction with other stereoscopic 3D displays. The 3D & VR Workshop examined the relationship between stereoscopic 3D and various forms of holographic works. With thanks to Ray Zone for the invitation, to Chuck Paxton and Danguole Varnas for assistance in the preparation and installation, and to Gary Cullen for the loan of display holograms for use in the workshop presentation which also included Razutis' holograms.
