Curated by August Muth
Aura Kinetica is a diverse collection of artworks that utilize the medium of holography. Included in this exhibition curated by August Muth are works by Fred Unterseher, Dora Tass, Andrew Pepper, Mary Harman, C Alex Clark, Michael Crawford, Rebecca Deem, and August Muth. This show highlights the cutting-edge possibilities of this unique medium, and reveals different approaches to process and content. Within these varied visions there is a common interest and attraction to light itself as a primordial force and mystery.
Some of the artists in this exhibition have been working in the realm of light and optics for over 40 years. Several others are emerging artists within this medium, and/or have a background in more traditional art forms. The majority of these works are produced utilizing an analog method resulting in incomparably high-resolution images. These light modulating structures record in detail how photons interact in the physical world. The selection of works on view explores both the physical and metaphysical experience of light.
