Jon Mitton - Simply the best?

More holograms from the 7th International Symposium on Display holography's exhibtion at Bodelwyddan Castle.

Reflection hologram on glass. Animated 7" diameter circle. Steel and brass tilting wall display. (Thanks to Mark Diamond for this set of photos).

Ok, I'm biased - Jon Mitton is a friend - but these holograms of his are among my favorites.

The red image is of a caged ball, revolving.

I really like the ball in the tilting wall display. IT WORKS! I bet it even looks better in real life.

Pearl, how did the primary teaching go?

The Mitton hologram is one of my favourites, too, along with many by Inaki Baguiristain and Patrick Boyd.

Thanks for asking about the workshops - they went really well. The students seemed to go away happy!

We had 12 students in the first and 16 in the second. It got really hot in the room though, so we kept 4 students in the room at one time and the other roamed around the exhibition.

Some got autographs from Fred Unterseher who had come to get another look at the exhibition!

Love your book Sean - 'Holographic Visions - A History of New Science' - I'll put a link to your page on my blog about the book now I've got it :).

And John, the ball is pseudoscopic and has a lot of movement, swinging as you walk by it.
Some of John's pieces are mechanised moving left to right on their own accord.

WOW, that's even better as it would give the novice viewer the feeling the ball is following them and leave them with a feeling of uncertainty.
