Light Drawings


James Minden's focus throughout his career as an artist has been on painting, drawing and printmaking. However, for a little more than three years now, he has been exploring a new two-dimensional medium he calls light drawing. They are handmade holograms, as they are interactive and appear three-dimensional. They are also known as abrasion holograms and are created on sheets of PETG plastic (glycol-modified polyethylene terephthalate) that Minden incises to reflect light in particular patterns. The wall pieces are mounted on a wood panel for support. They can be seen in normal lighting but are most effective when lit by a single point source. So far he has created them up to 96 x 72 inches. The interactive nature of these pieces is best seen in person, but videos and animations can also be effective, as can be seen above and elsewhere on this website.
