Jonathan Ross Holography Collection

This Exhibition celebrates the 60th anniversary of the hologram, which was invented by Hungarian scientist Dennis Gabor in Rugby in 1947.


The exhibition, devised by Jonathan Ross in association with curators from Banbury Museum and the Oxfordshire County Museum has been mainly drawn from the Ross collection with support from various leading hologram makers. It comprises over 60 holograms, plus display cases containing stereoscopes, anaglyphs and lenticulars -illustrating other types of 3D imaging - and examples of applied holography - books, comics, toys, packaging etc., making it probably the most comprehensive survey of the medium to be seen in the UK.

The holograms on show include a large selection by international artists, alongside examples of the best in display holography. Visitors will see how holography can be used in advertising displays and to document museum artefacts. There is a collection of holographic portraits, including famous faces such as Richard Hamilton, Boy George, and Herbie Hancock, and animated holograms of all sorts. There are holograms of birds and animals and a selection of images designed to appeal to children. Landmark holograms from the past 30 years and the latest in full-colour techniques.

Following its two-month run at Banbury, 'HOLOGRAMS, the first 60 years' will tour to Woodstock, Rugby and Aylesbury. Museums wishing to book the exhibition from March 2009 should contact Jonathan Ross  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
