specular holography by Matt Brand
 what  how  where  why  who

Specular holography is a new visual medium that I've been developing as a technology and as an art form. It is a way of drawing three-dimensional scenes by manipulating the way light scintillates off a two-dimensional surface.

This website shows some of my favorite pieces from the last few years, rendered onto metal plate and transparent plastic. The links at the bottom of each page will take you to videos that show how the holographic image changes with motion. The links at the top of each page will take you to explanations, a FAQ, contact info, etc. Enjoy!

Each hologram is a 2D arrangement of fine optical surfaces (reflectors or refractors) that direct a unique bundle of light rays to each viewpoint. The field of rays is structured so that you perceive a scene that is three-dimensional, or animated, or both. Read on to find out  how .
