Paper Abstract

Lightforest installation is a large-scale holographic work permanently installed at the MIT Museum in Cambridge MA. Organic shapes in the rounded walls and floor of a small room (15 by 11 by 9 feet) frame the approximately 200 white- light transmission holograms of fabricated rainforest plants and light and image projections. Additional projects as a result of the Lightforest installation include the creation of a Holography Teaching Program at the MIT Museum, including a partnership with the WSNS elementary school and the creation of a holographic garden mural in the school combining real plants with reflection copies of Lightforest holograms. The combined Lightforest project makes important connections between art, technology, education, and the environment.
