Digital reflection hologram on photopolymer, 24’’ x 24’’
One of the five unique holograms in the series CELESTIAL BALLERINA
Sculptures of motion created through 3D scanning are combine with environments inspired by the chakras and developed through generative computer art.
CELESTIAL BALLERINA moves dance off the stage and into a new digital realm by merging the worlds of technology, art and performance. Each work offers a captivating glimpse of the emerging art form of digital holography by harnessing the power of the ballet.
Blum’s approach to art and technology is to make tangible worlds from the digital. Using the technological element of 3D scanning, she recreates moments of time and motion. The perceived imperfections of technological glitches are juxtaposed with delicate patterns producing an aesthetic that highlights a digital interpretation of dynamic space. Blum combines design and art with a focus on complex systems and emerging technologies. Her inspiration comes from the cohabitation of nature, contemporary materials and technology with the spiritual journey of the human being. Her projects develop form and pattern through digital and physical manifestations.
