Hologram art "healing for broken hearts by Melissa Crenshaw from the Global Images collection

"Like any other purely visual medium, it is hard to describe a hologram in words.  And because holography is more than just a picture, it is hard to show it on a postcard.  Holography is so much more than just a 3-D image. It can display time, motion, fantastic colours; it can be interactive and is capable of capturing the qualities of light itself".  Patrick Boyd hologram artist
