The device gathers DIY methodologies, smart/affordable approaches to 3d imaginary and re-adapted technology in order to achieve a 3D display using light, lenses and photographic transparencies. True Hologram is an artistic and intuitive advance of futuristic cinematic outcomes. The research has been executed as an artistic, intuitive investigation about futuristic screening devices, working exclusively with self-invented methodologies.
