Link: Holographic telepresence demonstrated (Nature)
“A practical method of producing truly three-dimensional images that do not require the viewer to wear special eyewear would have many potential applications – in telemedicine, mapping and entertainment, for instance. True 3D holographic displays have so far lacked the capability of updating images with sufficient speed to convey movement. Now, a team working at the University of Arizona’s College of Optical Sciences and Nitto Denko Technical Corporation in Oceanside, California, has developed a system that updates images at close to real-time.” Weiterlesen (Nature)

“Theatre of War”
“Shot in Saddam Hussein’s hilltop palace in the mountains overlooking the River Tigris, Theatre of War is a slow, virtually static video piece redolent of classical history painting. Audio was recorded at the official US military hand-over ceremony at the nearby city of Saniya. A mullah’s prayer for unity among Arabs is spoken, after which the pan-Arab national anthem, Mawtini (My Homeland) is played, emphasizing Arab national solidarity and a pan-Arab territory. Made in Iraq in March 2009. Cinematography and Editing by Trevor Tweeten. Digital Color and Post Production by Jerome Thelia.” Vimeo-Credits: Richard Mosse.
