#5: Holographic life forms
“Animation isn’t the illusion of life; it is life.” — Chuck Jones
A major goal of our team’s work in developing the Looking Glass has been to perfect the illusion of life — that wondrous illusion first pioneered by animators and film makers well over a century ago — and to make that illusion totally and absolutely indistinguishable from reality.
I believe several artists around the world have just recently crossed this critical threshold. They’ve created a variety of artificial life forms in their Looking Glasses that, in radically different ways, behave like strange and very real life forms made entirely of light.
Next up, #6: Holoquarium.
*this is part of our “100 Days of Holograms” series, where Missy Senteio and Shawn Frayne of Looking Glass Factory post one new wonderful or weird (or both!) use for the Looking Glass holographic display each day.
