Work by Andrew Pepper will be on show at the Governors Island National Monument Summer Museum, New York, USA.

Selected by Dr. Martina Mrongovius, the exhibition brings together a number of international artists who engaged with holography in their practice.

Pepper will be showing one of his early white light reflection holograms, Line Addition, from the Point, Line and Plane Addition series - which is held in a number of public and private collections world-wide.

Organised by the Holocenter, New York, the exhibition is part of the International Year of Light 2015 and runs through the summer from May 23rd.

Museum open weekends 12 - 6pm

Andrew Pepper is showing new work in Aura Kinetica, an international exhibition curated by August Muth, which brings together artists from Canada, Italy, the UK and USA, who use light and holography within their practice.

 

 

A new piece has been produced for this exhibition, in collaboration with the Light Foundry Inc, Santa Fe, and is part of the city-wide Currents New Media Arts Festival, now in its 7th year.

Date: 2015

Materials: Digital hologram, shuttered theatrical spotlight

Size: Hologram 29 x 29 cm

Installation: Gallery floor

Notes: Produced within the Summer Lodge 2015 residency at Nottingham Trent University.
29th June - 10th July 2015.

 

In the centre of a darkened space the rectangular hologram is displayed supported by a thin wooden plinth, illuminated directly from above by a shuttered theatrical spotlight.

Light falls onto the holographic surface, which in turn casts a shadow onto the floor below.  The installation is part of the 'peripheral view' group of works, which attempts to dislocate the viewer's initial connection with the holographic image.

From the initial approach to the work the image in the hologram is not visible, only the structural arrangement which supports the holographic space.

As the viewer changes their point of observation and moves within the vertical viewing zone of the hologram, a series of three planes, each with a rectangular space, becomes visible.

One of these virtual surfaces 'sits' directly on the picture place of the hologram's surface, one protrudes into the observer's space and the third recedes into the hologram's space.

Date: 2015

Materials: Digital hologram, 35mm slide + projector

Size: Hologram 29 x 29 cm

Installation: Gallery wall

Notes: Produced within the Summer Lodge 2015 residency at Nottingham Trent University.
29th June - 10th July 2015.

The digital hologram containing three distinct planes of light, each punctuated by a rectangular hole, is displayed in a traditional format on the gallery wall.
Light from a 35mm slide is projected across the space to illuminate the holographic rectangle.

The location and structure of the plinth, which supports the 35mm slide projector, is integral to the installation, offering a 'barrier' between the observer and the observed.

There are a series of questions raised around the nature of the illumination.  Is the projector projecting the image, seen in the hologram, in a traditional manner?  Where is the image located?  Within the hologram, within the projector or some space between the two?

Attempting to view the holographic image 'head on', at the point where traditional vanishing point perspective would become operative, caused the observer to obscure the illuminating source effectively 'switching off' the holographic image. 

The use of semi-redundant technology (slide projector) as an integral aspect of the installation, alongside advanced imaging technology (digital holographics) and the vocabulary of gallery installation (through wall-based and museum plinths) attempt to raise question around the misconception of how holographic images are ‘projected’ and their 'place' in a display culture.

Andrew Pepper is showing new work in Holography, Light, Time & Space, Aveiro City Museum, Portugal.

26th June - 30th September 2018.

 

A curated exhibition including over 25 internaternational artists working with holography and light.

 

The show coincided with the 11th International Symposium on Display Holography held at the University of Avairo.

 

A new work by Pepper was presented as part of the exhibition which included the floor installation Light Wedge 2018.

 

The initial installation was made up of two glass holographic plates, one supported by a wooden wedge and the other by the first holographic plate.

 

This version was on show for the duration of the symposium and was then reinstalled to include a single plate with holographic drawing and wedge.
