Georges Dyens' "HOLOSCULPTURES" are hybrid artworks integrating holograms and fiber optics with both sculptures and electroacoustic music. Georges Dyens' approach tends to be holistic in concept seeking the spiritual dim- mens ion of new art forms through technological means. Among artworks like Big Bang II and Big Bang III Georges Dyens explores the concept of cosmological time and memory through light (holograms and fiber optics) and spiritual resonances (electroacoustic music). Furthermore, most of Dyens' artworks possess their own computer controlled life cycle, creating in them, both metaphysically and in reality, a human and mechanical mortality. In this paper Georges Dyens will discuss this approach and its coexistence with technical requirements, and will focus on various problems raised by large scale outdoor permanent installations.
