The origin of holographic species
The Origin of Holographic Species consists of a cabinet containing what appear to be 3 holograms of complex geometric structures, vaguely resembling species of flowers or even types of plankton. In reality, each of these “objects” consists of thin strands of plastic coated with UV reactive paint, mounted on top of small motors. As the objects rotate at approximately 2600 rpms under ultra violet light, they become fluorescent and 3-dimensional. These “specimens” are not identified as either flora or fauna deliberately, allowing the viewer the opportunity to classify these speculative species of their own accord.
