apologies using the same the image as that of the earlier but some very pleased to have use my work well in february I exhibited a series of holograms that said Jonathan Ross's gallery in London and most of my pieces in the show had writing in an and 10 genders kindly and holding up 1 of them now and I'm not expecting to get to see the clearly but it just gives you an idea of some of the work that I did that because the pieces are in the in the shadow of this while a friend of mine at the exhibition a scientist from the perplexed asked me why do you have writing in all of your holograms and this so this paper is in response to that question or rather my own question which was How does the use of text in richer work of art or words and measuring have been an integral part of creative image-making for many hundreds if not thousands of years visual communication has included ancient Egyptian cotton effects and Chinese calligraphy and and later in western on the elimination of religious manuscripts so 1 of this paper is going
to out to cover some the ways in which text and is used to and had to after images for example and text can help the artistic bring the outside world into the hologram and bring the in a more
private world of the artist outside to the view text has also been used in our work and
in holographic works of art to avoid merely mimicking the outside world the use of text helps to avoid deceiving the viewer into thinking that the holographic object and find out holography is a real object text has also been used to highlight the boundaries of holographic space and draw attention to the surface of the holographic plate and that text is also
being used and as a metaphor for the storage of time and size information so 1st modern and
contemporary artists have used text investigate the different physical and psychological
spaces of public and private life or in and out world in 1912 broken because they invent a collage by adding text from advertisements in newspapers to the painting building up the surface of the painting reaching outwards toward the viewer and here in this picture you can see and the painting the top by Picasso in 1913 and he'd used newspaper and then ripped up and cussing and he used wallpaper together and the cuttings describes political events and then this juxtaposition of the and the personal and political was in a domestic setting and the use of collage as a new medium then and expanded artists visual vocabulary more than 80 years later Douglas Thailand used to college and and included a printed words graphics and
reflection holograms to bring the outside world into the personal space of year in an attempt to make sense of the outside time suggest that the was seeking answers in a new landscapes by collecting and that for me he said the code to civilization which we ceaselessly seek to comprehend and understand lies hidden in the complex mosaic of everyday and ephemeral about issues such as gender and race under the artists have have
such as the American conceptual artist Jenny Holzer have use text to represent and the projection of the inner world of the artist outward crossing psychological boundary to make the Internet public also claims back the public space previously dominated by the commercial world and advertising space suppressing it for example you can see how she projected text and public space In this image of her work for the city other works projected onto public buildings in the bases have included instructions it is in your self interest to try to be very tender so when
texture is used to mark the boundaries between public and private and inspired by holds as well as which explores those physical and psychological boundaries produced and a series of works which make the personal intimate public and here is an example of a a couple of holograms of mine
that uses laser etched and writing on food and these effects by 40 holograms which also had of text on the the friends there's a narrative written on the fate which explores different cultural meanings of food and eating and also unexpected unexpressed personal desires projected onto the food which only legible in places again here you can see
that and the fruit the bananas have got uh laser etched writing on them both sort of formal text which is just about visible in the and the non fronts and so informal text handwritten and laser etched fruit in the background of all artists have also
and trying to avoid deceiving and and that you and here we can see random agreed and trail of images and made in 1929 and then what's written and they're in french
translation is this is not a pipe and the point migrates point was all this isn't applied this is a representation of a pipe In that 1992 similarly Margaret Banyan produced a version of RAP flowers which is in the exhibition Council which she called penetrate the surface you
can see the words and very small at the bottom which says penetrate the emulsion of the surface along with an and silver silver pen all over the surface of the hologram marks that can help to prevent the deception and of the image Margaret says that she gives a written instruction to the viewer to penetrate the surface of the emulsion which includes both to the physical act of viewing the hollow-gram B on the image plane and metaphysical active penetrating superficial appearances markets working influence my and draw attention to the surface of a holographic plate and also to draw the viewer's attention to the holographic space the space in front of and behind the plant the considers artificial and push against and the
text and is laser rupture the C O 2 laser onto the mirror behind the and white lights when I transmission holograph and the and the action of the hand pushing against the play emphasizes where the plane the whole agreement and the text is taken from a work book entitled boundary power and which describes the needs and to have strong emotional bond is and how to build them if you if you don't have them so the piece that as a metaphor for physical and psychological so so that text can be used to define space and and try to avoid mimicking the on line so moving from the use of text to find space within holography let's move towards how text has been used to draw the viewer's attention to how works of art can be a metaphor for storing time and information all artists
of use many different media to collect and organize parts of life emotions thoughts and ideas and he you can see the American sculptor Joseph Connell and with 1 of his pieces and which described as a symbol of large and where he produced glass funded boxes containing catalogs of items can be stored likewise artisan holographers and Mary Christianity and ended when Union gamble have produced work based on cataloging historical information In them Margaret Gregory and and what was produced work produced in that 1997 Mary Christianity uses holographic text to explore historical research and here is and the
pieces in her exhibition and this is 1 of them and explored research from a cultural an anthropologist Margaret Mead who commented on the visible and invisible aspects of the interesting thing about this space as you can see clearly the reflection hologram which shows and tags and it's list of but in the back it looks like the text is producing a shadow will you can't produce the shadow from the line so what she's done very and carefully etched the plate that supports the hologram with words that describe the and precise opposite of the of folk what the words In the hollow-gram allude to and and I I believe and showed its and images of by winning and gambles and BPM and see which showed holograms of spines of books and Catalan cataloging cards produced during a residency at the library it was set of their work that the holograms and stored time in a critique of their work and Norman Bryson professor fine a Harford stated that photographs of books confinement path to the past however the hollow-gram exist in the present following last layer and text has been used in holography to to
explore time and movement and then wanted cats in his series hollow poetry and develops a new visual poetic language is 1 of his pieces produced in 90 free from that series as the viewer classes and what is worth letters and words move and reform in relationship to the positioning of the view of the is in fact hitting on poetry that's describes his work as being organized in discontinuous space 1 no of medium allows artists to explore images and time and space and a in a similar way text is used here for its relationship with poetry and its 4 dimensional scope so to conclude why should we use textual why can an artist
use text and and does it enrich work of art well neither the written word nor the visual image can adequately communicate
all that the all the artists thoughts and emotions and all artists tried to communicate as clearly as possible with their audience using words can help reach towards the meaning that exists somewhere between the visual image in the text all artists traditionally used text to provide an extra dimension regions the visual image the cubist use text to bring outside world inside the inside the artwork contemporary artist can use text to take the inside world of the internet and projected outward use the text allows the holographic artist to expand the visual vocabulary by adding extra dimension of time and space to their work the spatial positioning of text whether it straddles the image plane receipts projected forward as another layer of meaning the richness against the artwork providing a greater depth of communication and finish that integrins
