Beyond the extreme supernatural art
Of conceptual light art lies
The supra-natural art of holography,
A truly radical theocratic art
Which, taken to abstract extremes, would confirm
A free-electron absolutism suited to
A transcendental age and society,
And antithetical to the inception of art
In terms, necessarily mundane, of representational sculpture.
If holography begins in the representational,
Relative to Social Transcendentalism,
It must culminate in the abstract,
In deference to the absolutist criteria of
A more extreme, or super-transcendental age.
Holograms suggest a kind of external tripping,
As though they were LSD visions outside
Rather than inside the mind.
Thus they would be appropriate to
The hallucinogenic phase of a theocratic age,
As much the converse of
The internal spiritual life of contemplation
As television is currently the converse of
The internal soulful life of dreams.
And the same would apply to
The later, hypermeditating phase of such an age,
When, in order to correspond with the internal world,
The holograms would have to be abstract -
Projections into space of abstract sculptural shapes,
Specifically globular in appearance,
The better to intimate of ultimate essence.
