Holograms, surprising three-dimensional images
Holography is a process of three-dimensional photography invented in 1948 by Dennis Gabord. For a long time, holograms have been very successful.
The value of holograms lies in the fact that they combine an aesthetic aspect and a scientific interest. Many of the holograms in the Maison de la Science are signed by their creator and have only been printed a limited number of times, demonstrating the thin line between holography and art.
Part of the collection comes from the Hololab laboratory (the holography laboratory of the University of Liège) and allows to highlight the link between the University of Liège and its research in the field of optics.
Within the museum, a space is exclusively dedicated to the exhibition of the holograms, which are adapted according to the various events and topics approached.
