Space:Light

A curated exhibition where light is the medium

Curated by Martina Mrongovius

Space:Light brings together artists working with the shaping of light and experimental imagery.

This exhibition is part of an ongoing program at the Center for the Holographic Arts to encourage artists to explore and create optical environments, light sculptures and visual structures. The Space:Light program is aimed at projects that investigate broad notions of holographic imaging, including multiple dimensions and immersive media and/or employ light as an artistic medium.
