people "know" that a hologram contains the whole
image in each if its parts, but to what extent is this
understood? 3BACKS appears to contain three seperate recordings
of one person, as if three pictures were taken and overlapped
only one recording was created; the three views are detected
in unison because the different lasers reconstruct three
seperate areas of the film at once. When
there is only one light source (see next image), your
brain interprets one still image "in there"
to be gazed upon from many perspectives; the change is
so transitional and smooth that we fall easily into this
deception. Illuminating several images at once alludes
to the fact that in essence, there are uncountable amounts
of images encoded into the film that we usually only see
one at a time; each perspective is a whole seperate image
of the total space.
