With my thesis project, Habitat 44o, I investigate the complexity of holographic space and how holography has the potential to augment the observers’ view of their surrounding environment. The purpose of this research is to isolate unique characteristics of architecture and holography to lay the foundation for my art practice. In the field of holography, both artists and scientists alike refer to the holographic image as a “reconstruction," a shorthand for wavefront reconstruction. At the intersection of holography and architecture, I explore the critical implications of my reconstructions through the lens of Jens Schröter and his analysis of the transplane image, and through Rosalind Krauss' concept of axiomatic structures. Taking a constructivist approach, I create a holographic artwork and fabricate a spatial canvas that acts as an intervention in architectural space in order to construct a theory and practice of environmental holography.
