Space Is A Hologram (2014) is premised on the idea of the “space pixel”. A strand of scientific research proposes that the universe’s information may be contained in the same way as pixels on a screen and that the natural “pixel size” of space is roughly 10 trillion trillion times smaller than an atom. Our notions of space and form are thus collapsed into a two-dimensional hologram. Through simple lines of light and color, the work suggests the planes of a three-dimensional cube, prompting the optical illusion of a real spatial cube. The simplicity of triggering this jump between two and three-dimensionality, encourages us to think that perhaps it is not so great a leap to perceive of our reality (3D) experience as conjured from a 2D hologram.
