Critical Writings - Web Distribution - Exhibitions
Holographic works by Al Razutis (my studio) and Sharon McCormack from her Sharon McCormack Collection and Archives are on display now at Visual Alchemy Studio, Saturna Island, BC Canada. Additionally, selections from the nude pulsed holographic portraits of Ron Olsen (in the collection of AR) are also on view.
This exhibition of 'white-light illumination' holography features holographic stereograms, embossed holograms, pulsed laser originated white-light reflection holograms, and dichromate (DCG) holography and art.
CURATOR'S COMMENT: This exhibition features a pot pouri of subjects primarily representative of anthropomorphic images (human subjects) to include both fine art and the design arts of advertising. White light illumination unifies all of these themes in the public imagination.

Pulsed-Laser Holograms by Al Razutis in Lanzhou, China
2010 'DEJA VU' holographic art and 3D exhibition
Al Razutis' 1970 optical printing classic AAEON was presented in a program of West-Coast Experimental Films joining other classic films and makers including Bruce Conner (Cosmic Ray, Crossroads), David Rimmer (Variations on a Cellophane Wrapper), and Pat O'Neill (7362, Runs Good) presented November 23, 2015 at The Cinematheque, Vancouver, Canada.
These 3D Worlds were built in VRML CG 'virtual space' in natural (orthoscopic) 3D, feature video maps of touch sensitive objects and facades with music. Coded with love of adventure in virtual space.
Poetic avant-garde subjects, internationally shown, with selections at
the Paris 1997, and the European Media Arts Festival 2002 Germany.
VRML WORLDS UROBOROS by Razutis first premiered in North America in 1999 Vancouver, Canada at 'The Body Electric' exhibition.
In 1972 Vancouver Visual Alchemy Studio (Inc.) was created to pursue independent avant-garde films, synaesthetic video art, the newly emerging holographic arts and stereoscopic 3D which would later include interactive 3D VR. These pages attest to both the origins of these works and their public presence in exhibitions, education, and technological innovations.
