Paper Abstract

The inclusion of the arts in an otherwise scientific and technical conference is occasion to examine the relationship between art and science, and particularly in the newly emergent field of holography. Discussions concerning the "marriage of art and science" have been conducted before and surely will continue in the future. In this paper I wish to readdress the manner in which scientific rationalism interprets holographic art and the manner in which the arts can respond and contribute to further discussion. I will posit art holography as a kind of 'bride' to the more estabished and male-dominated technologies, a bride of unknown qualities. This paper presents a number of problematic conditions affect-ing art holography proper and examines its relationship to contemporary culture. Furthermore, the paper presents a theoretical schema for the development of a semiotic which can be employed in the study of display and art holography, a schema responsive to scientific rationalism and one which provides a point of further theoretical development of use value to both scientist and artist.
