Holonomic, solo show.
May 1-10, 2015, HoloCenter at Flux Factory, New York, USA
The holographic image evokes with its multidimensional existence, eludes with its transparent volume and draws with perceptual phenomena the viewer into a philosophical paradox. The dynamic flux of perception understood through intuition is the idea of the intertwining of perceiver and perceived linked by light. The holographic image not only is spatial and color perception, the pure product of light, but this light coded information is always in the process of self-construction with our eyes, according to our movements and the point of view adopted. In Holonomic Eric Leiser presents a series of luminous holographic images of sculptures involving falling snow and light on splashing water made with a Ruby Pulse Laser in conversation with holonomic brain theory, developed by Neuroscientist Dr. Karl Pribram (1919-2015), a model of human cognition that describes the brain as a holographic storage network. Nueropsychology describes engrams as a means by which memory traces are stored as biophysical changes in neural tissue in response to external stimuli. This investigation of perception as the medium which can be applied to understanding all reality, Leiser points out how human cognition is intrinsically involved with co creating our perceived world.
