In 2013 was invited to write an article for HOLO Magazine exploring five fantastical display prototypes and speculate on their future creative potential for artists and designers. The chosen technologies, some based on much older inventions, included True Volumetric Holography, Colloidal Displays, Caustic Engineering, Ferro Fluids and the Peppers Ghost technique. The article was excellently illustrated using isomeric schematic diagrams by Axel Pfaender

While true holographic systems with interactive volumetric interfaces might inspire ‘hands on’ voxel sculpting for 3D printing, large scale prisms, using the Peppers Ghost technique will be used to build observatories allowing the generation of life-sized refraction holograms. Elsewhere Caustically engineered glasshouses may act as spectral cinemas where the position and strength of the Sun will generate slowly shifting imagery. Colloidal displays could be used in the construction of tangible audio-visual instruments where volume and texture, and especially specularity become performative parameters. Ferro Electric Displays, combining ultra-high frame rates with very high pixel resolution, will allow future video artists to advance to extreme definition [300dpi+] and less lossy moving image representations. This a brief summary fragment of the full 5 page article.
