Light Barrier - Kimchi and Chips

The earliest fictional visualizations of holographic projection fired the imagination of all who saw them. Free - standing 3D projections have existed as a bench mark of "future tech" ever since. The technique of projecting onto mist or smoke has been explored in several artworks over the last decade but 3D scanning has now enabled us to generate images with physical depth. Kimchi and Chips have made an ingenious and beautiful device using a combination of scanning and a mirror matrix to map images onto water vapor. The combination of shapes chosen and movement perfectly exploits the presence of this vapor to evoke luminous, emergent forms. It is easy to imagine countless commercial applications for this technology and those coming after it. Very soon we may have to abandon even the voids in our cities to a blizzard of unsolicited information. I suspect though,  it will be these early, exploratory steps, made free of urgent compulsions and exhortation which will stay in the memory.
