Artist Statement: Sam Moree
I look at holography as a dance of balance - a Rosetta
Stone - between Art and Science. The Primitive and the
Sophisticated. The Past and the Future. A balancing beam
of Light and Dark.
Working with diverse material - metal, stone, neon,
plastic, paint and glass, the sculpture echoes in a
holographic window. With my work I use stark, almost
symbolic sculpture as a diving board to tumble into a
holographic graffiti landscape.
At times the hologram is an arm of an image in search
of its sculptural body, or the sculpture is a directing
arrow to illusionary imagery. Other times they come
together dancing on that balancing beam.
The image time-travels across the laser table. A black
and white interfewrence pattern is captured in a scientific
chiaroscuro on the plate. This encoded `stone' translates
reality into a dream illusion.
My imagery works in and out of focus, becoming a peripheral,
To capture the image, one must dance a near-tribal two-step
which can be read as a mathematical equation forming different
answers each time it is observed.
Holography is my dance partner - with balance.
