MIT Museum collection, gift of Marian B. Javits

The Jeweled Net: Views of Contemporary Holography presents a rare opportunity to view selected works from the world-wide community of practicing display holographers. The MIT Museum holds the world's largest and most comprehensive collection of holograms, and regularly invites artists to showcase new work at the Museum. Seth Riskin, MIT Museum's Emerging Technologies and Holography/Spatial Imaging Initiative manager, organized the exhibition in conjunction with the 9th International Symposium on Display Holography, held at MIT in June 2012.

What is a hologram?
A hologram is a 3- dimensional image that results from a complex set of imaging activities involving lighting the object to be recorded on a film or digital recording device, in a particular manner, as with a laser, using a direct beam of coherent light.

Looking at the holograms in the MIT Museum’s collection will give you an idea of the variety of ways that a hologram can be created.
