Workshop-Make your own hologram


A hologram is a three-dimensional projection of a subject. It is composed of light and appears to have a spatial and physical form. However, you can just walk through it because it is an illusion. Holograms used to be reserved only for science fiction films. Nowadays, a hologram is available to everyone. Holograms have many special applications. For instance, a protest march was once known to have been organised in South Korea with a crowd of hologram projections. Also, the late pop star Michael Jackson drew packed audiences with a show starring a hologram of himself. In this workshop, children learn how to create a hologram without the need for an expensive hologram projector. All it takes is some physics and a smartphone. They also learn how to turn a video into a hologram. This way, they can, for example, make a spatial projection of themselves.

Key objectives
Learning to use the medium of holography by working with different viewpoints, as well as understanding the technical workings of a camera. In addition, the sense of composition, expression and visual language is strengthened. The pupil learns to use visual or auditory means to report on participation in artistic activities, both as a spectator and as a participant. The pupil learns to reflect orally or in writing on his own work and the work of others, including artists. (core objectives 50, 51 and 52)
