Painting to Hologram

Make your art digital - and three-dimensional - as a hologram! Work with talented street artist Kade to design and paint your own double-sided artwork - then build a smartphone display prism to animate your artwork as a hologram.

Once you’ve painted your artwork, you’ll learn how to hang and then film it on a smartphone, edit the footage and use a hologram conversion app to display your artwork into your prism!

After you’ve made your prism, you’ll collaborate with your class to build a large-scale hologram prism out of perspex, using a television monitor as the screen.

At the end of the week, the prism will display every participant’s artwork as a large group hologram.

All participants will take their prism home to continue to make holographic animations of their artwork.
