At the MIT Museum in Boston the exhibition of over 20 internationally created holograms can still be seen until September 28, 2013. The 9th International Symposium on Display Holography being held for the first time in Boston, Co-chaired by Seth Riskin and Michael Bove, and is presented by the MIT Museum and the MIT Media Lab.

As the MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) Museum informs: “The exhibition presents a rare opportunity to view selected works from the world-wide community of practicing display holographers. The MIT Museum holds the world’s largest and most comprehensive collection of holograms and regularly invites artists to showcase new work at the Museum. “This new exhibition is an example of our expanded commitment to support public engagement with practicing artists through exhibitions and programs,” says Seth Riskin, who will give talks and tours throughout the coming year in his role as the MIT Museum’s Manager of Emerging Technologies and Holography/Spatial Imaging Initiatives.

The Jeweled Net: Views of Contemporary Holography surveys state-of-the-art display holography, and showcases the artistic and technical merit of individual works of art. Selected by a panel of experts, the holograms on display represent artists from Germany, Italy, the UK, Canada, Australia, Japan, and the US. ” A hologram” according to Riskin, “represents how the human brain, and light information interact to create the experience of three-dimensional space. Holography represents deeper technological access into light’s capacity as an image and information carrier.””
