Art 3201H / Phy 3201H: Honors Holography 1

Course Description:
Exploration of laser holography as a tool in art and science. Students learn the basic techniques of 3D image making, create and display holograms, construct a diode laser and use it to make holograms.
Prereq: Enrollment in the honors program or permission of dept or instructor. Repeatable to a maximum of 9 cr hrs. including credits earned in Art 3201 and 3201H. Cross-listed in Art and Physics. GEC arts and hums VPA course.

Course Objectives:
This course will introduce and encourage exploration of holography as an artistic and scientific tool. The student will create and evolve three-dimensional holographic imagery using created and found objects to produce an artistic experience for the viewer.

Upon successful completion of the course, the student will:
     - understand the basic science concepts and techniques of holography
     - understand the basics of creating artistic imagery using holography
     - construct and use a basic diode laser
     - learn key events and personnel in the history of holography
