Stereoscopic Movies without 3D Glasses or projection screens



About Hologlyphics

3D movies, floating in free space. Viewed without 3D glasses or projection screens.

Hologlyphics combines elements of stereoscopic cinema, music, video synthesis, kinetic sculpture, and visionary film to create a unique new artform.

Walter Funk Bio-


Artist/Musician Walter Funk began Hologlyphics in 1994 attempting to merge music, video art and holography, leading to his pioneering use of volumetric displays and augmented reality for art and entertainment. This visual work has been shown widely at art galleries, museums and festivals. He has two scientific papers published by the International Society for Optical Engineering. “History of autostereoscopic cinema” and “Hologlyphics: volumetric image synthesis performance system”.


Walter appears on over 30 released recordings, and has recorded or performed music with Fifty Foot Hose, Kwisp, John Cage, and Daevid Allen. He studied holography at The Holography Institute and music at Center for New Music and Audio Technology, UC Berkeley.


Portable Volumetric Video Synth -

Modular analog volumetric video synthesizer- patch programmable by 'patch wires'.

Generates Hyper-Chaotic patterns, capable of ultra high frequency cross-modulations. Can also bend ultrasonic sidebands down into the audio range for audio synthesis and processing.
