I first became involved with holography in I984 and was interested particularly in the application of holography in museums. I set up a holographic studio trading as 3DI and produced an 'Ancient Art Series .
From 1987-1989 I was a student at the Royal College of Art, during this time my direction changed and I became more interested in the kinetic and optical qualities of holograms than their 3-dimensionality. My work was concerned with geometric pattern and the holograms were experiments in spectral colour mixing in space (i.e. off the picture plane).
I was also keen to use holography in an architectural context. After I left the Royal College of Art, I was able to develop some of these ideas when working as a consultant on a research project into the application of holography in architectural glass.
Through my practical experience of working with light I became more interested in its metaphysical aspect and am at present researching a Ph.D thesis on 'Light in Sacred Art'. at the Prince of Wales's Institute of Architecture.
