WINDOW - original installation piece with silver halide wlr holograms (on floor) exhibited in 'TOTEM' exhibition, Toronto.
Floor pieces were stolen while on exhibit at 'LICHT/BLICHE', Frankfurt, Germany following Toronto exhibition.
Subsequently followed with Window 2 (dichromate holograms - produced with Gary Cullen / Holocrafts, Canada) in 1985.

Installation description:

Hologram description: White-Light Reflection Holograms (silver halide emulsion, denysiuk single beam white light reflection bleached holograms ('window pieces') lying on the floor in designated (illuminated) locations. The holograms were cut from 8" x 10" AGFA silver halide emulsion glass plates which were exposed individually as separate and unique H1 holograms. The subject matter in each hologram is a animal bone or part of a bone.

"WINDOW I captures the frozen moment after impact of the holographic real, as a version of surrealist real, on the physical real, by way of metaphor and implied allegory. I prefer the allegory to include bone objects, like animals in flight, crashing through the-two dimensional window panes that are suspended in light. The allegory needs 'meat' but only gets glass and bones. The results of the impact are quite visible on the floor."

WINDOW II created after theft of WINDOW in Frankfurt Exhibition.
