ERIC LEISER presents holograms of sculpted objects optically captured by laser light onto sheets of glass based on set theory. Georg Cantor a German mathematician, born in Russia best known as the creator of set theory, which has become a fundamental theory in mathematics. Cantor established the importance of onetoone correspondence between sets, defined infinite and wellordered sets, and proved that the real numbers are "more numerous" than the natural numbers. In fact, Cantor's theorem implies the existence of an "infinity of infinities". In Eric's holographic work i explore visually the possibilities and paradox's found in various hierarchies of infinite sets. His work is a result of intense efforts to produce basrelief sculptures, combined in some cases with other objects, as the subjects of his images. The results are throughthe window visual spaces saturated with forms, incidents and patterns, in blazing shards of color. They reward viewing from various angles, and their phantom forward projections layer on top of things hiding in the depths behind the window.
