Holographics History at Visual Alchemy

Creations in Holographic Art and Designs since 1972

Holography was initiated at Visual Alchemy, Vancouver in the early 1970's owing in part to two 'Senior Arts Grants' from the Canada Council For the Arts Penny Jacques, Film Officer. The early works were entirely experimental, not client-driven, and in the beginnings we built our lasers, lab and patiently explored the medium until it was time for public exhibition, namely 'Visual Alchemy' 1977 (Burnaby Art Gallery) which was also toured cross-Canada exhibition and included 'Canada Day' in Ottawa opened by then Prime Minister Trudeau and facilitated by Lorraine Monk NFB Photography Division Head.

West-Coast Artists in Light

3-Part Documentary on Holographic Arts

Al Razutis' documentary film project West-Coast Artists in Light has been conducted over several decades of filming. Beginning in standard film 2D early 1990's the project moved to stereoscopoic 3D film in the late 1990's, one that highlighted the 'spatial characteristics' of holographic art and artists working in their laboratories. The resultant 3-part film is available by special arrangement for public screenings.

Wavefront Holography Magazine of the 80's

.Critical Journal. on the Arts and Commerce of Holography

Al Razutis' publishing project Wavefront Magazine was created in the 1980's as a journal of holography with the intention of combining both the business - technical aspects of holography with the arts of holography. The final paper edition was published in the 1990's, and final web edition published 2001. The history and contents of Wavefront Magazine Issues continues to this day to be a resource for the history of holography world-wide.
