Newcastle Lecturer

Exploring the Holographic

Martina Mrongovius

Martina Mrongovius captures urban environments in assembled photomontages she prints into holographic images. Her artworks investigate how perception shapes experience and are often installed in ways that provoke viewers to move. In this lecture Martina will discuss how her artworks were inspired by holographic imaging and navigating the urban landscape.

This lecture is being offered both as an ADFAS lecture and as a lecture in the annual lecture program of the Newcastle Branch of the Royal Society of NSW.
