From the website:

"The holographic imaging process uses laser light to store and reproduce three-dimensional images. Invented in the late 1940s, holography is best known for industrial and commercial applications ranging from credit card security to product packaging. Many artists have experimented with holography's creative properties since the late 1960s.

"The Museum's collection chronicles the history of the science and technology of holography, capturing both the fine art that represents new and unusual expressions in media as well as holography's industrial and commercial applications. Today, individuals all over the world work in the medium and extend its imaging abilities beyond solely replicating three-dimensional objects. The exhibition features works by several world-renown artists, including Margaret Benyon, Rudie Berkhout, Melissa Crenshaw, Setsuko Ishii, Marie Andree Cossette, and John Kaufman."

    Well I will save the great rating for another time, which is not to say that it was not great. I had a um... great time. It was my first meetup with this group. Although it was a small gathering perhaps that was good because its hard to go through a museum with lots of people. I had never been to the MIT museum before and I recommend it to anyone. The Holograms were very cool. I have not seen holograms that large before. There were other influential displays there as well.

    I enjoyed getting lunch with you guys afterwards and getting to know you a bit. I look forward to more meetups with this group. Thanks for organizing Dave!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
