The technique used by Brand to create these pieces is not one of conventional holography. He meticulously controls the unique shape of thousands of tiny optical pieces placed on a surface creating a 3D effect when the light source or viewer moves. This is essentially a mathematical problem in differential geometry and combinatorial optimization. Brand was the first person to correctly describe this technique in 2008 even though it dates back as early as the 1930s (check out his paper for details).

Art + Science = Awesome
“Every single day in 2013 San Francisco-based artist Klari Reis is creating an abstract painting inside the confines of the humble petri dish, a cylindrical container used by biologists to culture the growth of cells and algae, something the paintings seem to directly resemble.”
Some of the pieces look like fantastic planets or galaxies. They’re each so beautiful and different from each other and it’s only the beginning of March, so we’ve still got nearly 9 months of daily petri dish paintings to enjoy.
