Early motion-picture holographic works by Multiplex Company and Sharon McCormack from Sharon McCormack Collection and Archives are on display now at Visual Alchemy Studio, Saturna Island, BC Canada. These holograms represent some of the earliest commercially successful inventions and displays delivering autostereoscopic (no glasses) 3D moving images in a holographic format. These works are contemporary with experimental works and experimental cinema on the west-coast of the USA in the 70's-90's.

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.
