an ancient Greek word meaning whole.
In “The Ghost in the Machine” , a philosophical book by Arthur Koestler that greatly influenced the anime “Ghost in the Shell”, Holon was a concept proposing that the whole and the individual parts exist simultaneously.
In 2008, I created Momentopia using old camera lenses, and have since that time, used them together with a variety of materials to continue on the classic theme of jewelry, light and reflection- topics I have been researching since before my graduation thesis (2006), and each new series explores the subject from a different angle, and the elements of each series are connected to those that came before.
In my latest work, Holon, the camera lenses are embellished with a PVD coating of various colors. Through the shapes of the concave and convex lenses, the color-coated mirror surfaces on the opposite sides of each lens reflect and react to each other, creating a unique illusion of depth, and a three-dimensional hologram effect in an ever-changing pattern of reflection and color.
Holon is a new body of work, but also a continuation of 20 years of development. These lenses not only reflect our reality, but they may also change our perception.
