LIGHT ART (utilizing holography)

Holographic Light Scapes
Created using holographic optical elements, diffraction gratings, Cape May Diamonds (quartz), various lenses, mirrors, and beamsplitters. Light sources include lasers, led's, candles, the sun, the moon, oil lamps, and antique carbon filament light bulbs.


HoloTalk Internet Radio Show
An Internet radio broadcast which features guests from around the world. It is now archived with over 120 programs in MP3 format.
