Paper Abstract

The subsequent paper is a description of a mixed media installation which incorporates the holographic process real-time interferometry. A walk through description, along with a conceptual elaboration of the work, will be followed by a discussion of the production and challenges in the making of the real-time interferograms. "A Light Touch" is a three-roomed installation which integrates interferometry with other light responsive sculptural elements, such as dichromated gelatin holograms and fiber optics. The key concept of the work "the use of light as a means to look inside" is articulated through the interaction of ideas about the "holographic fringe" and "moirds." The basic subject matter explored via the interferometry is "the four elements." This exploration is simultaneously the acknowledgement of a universal language, and a sensual ^"-presentation of the natural world.
