'I look at holography as a dance of balance - a Rosetta Stone - between Art and Science. The Primitive and the Sophisticated. The Past and the Future. A balancing beam of Light and Dark.'
Sam Moree is an artist who has worked with holography, video and sculpture for over 40 years.
Moree is renown for his sculptural pieces that incorporate holograms and his work with rainbow holography. Notable exhibitions include at Center Pompidou, Paris, France, in 1985; in ‘Mehr Licht’ (1987), Kuntshalle Hamburg, Germany and at the Dali Museum in St Petersburg, Florida in 1999. He was awarded a 1996 fellowship by the Academy of Media Arts, Cologne, Germany.
Moree was closely associated with the New York Museum of Holography in Soho where he presented his is solo exhibition ʻFluxʼ in 1982. He participated in the traveling exhibition ʻGenerationsʼ (1999/2000) organized by the Center for the Holographic Arts.
Sam Moree co-founded the New York Holographic Laboratories with the late Dan Schweitzer in 1977. They offered some of the first holography classes and inspired many of the artists who have defined the medium. Moree teaches the holography class at School of Visual Arts and the HoloCenter Pulse Laser Holography workshops at Ohio State University.
