  • Catalogue Essay

    The James Turrell hologram In, Out, In/Out, 1994, was the first work
    created in what would later develop into an ongoing body of work by the
    artist. Consisting of three silver halide holograms, laminated into clear
    glass rectangles each with a silver/white flat plane of light with three
    different geometrical relationships to the surface of the glass; each panel
    is essentially a hologram where the virtual 3-dimensional image has been
    discarded.Without this virtual image, what remains is a plane or ray of
    pure light in space; elements which have become synonymous with James
    Turrell’s oeuvre.The individual panels were named In, Out and In/Out a
    rather deadpan description of morphology.The work was intended as an
    edition but the present lot was the only set ever produced.
