The holography exhibit presents an awe-inspiring sampling of twenty-three historic holograms from the MIT Museum holography collection, the world’s largest, including scientific and artistic applications of holography in diverse fields such as medicine, engineering, and retailing as well as architecture, portraiture and abstract art. Ganson’s sculptures feature ingenious, philosophical, and witty kinetic works composed of a range of materials from delicate wire to welded steel and concrete. O n V iew
