Deem explores experiences encountered with the transformative nature of light in conjunction with
space/time and the full scope of human developmental growth and awareness. She has worked with
holography as an art medium for over 40 years.
The nature of holography, she finds, offers an opportunity to explore dimension in ways not
previously encountered such as upside down, inside out and spatially backward images. Holograms
are actually interference patterns and increasing recognition acknowledges the part patterns effect
not only human emotions but by which “visual” information or “coded light” is processed by the
human organism. “Seeing” as a learned experience leads us to explore how we perceive our
experiences, real, imagined or manipulated and in turn brings greater awareness of how we create
Deem has received numerous awards including from the Shearwater Foundation, and National
Endowment. She has exhibited worldwide with artworks included in public and private collections.
