About

For more than 30 years August Muth has been an internationally exhibiting artist and a pioneer in the exploration of light through holography. Light, as we perceive it, gives us only a brief glimpse of the momentary realities in Which we exist. Muth strives to record with precision the perceptible light-space-time phenomena. As these three elements intertwine, a three-dimensional topography of pure light is formed, revealing a window into the elusive realms of the light-space-time paradox. His intent is to reveal a cognitive holographic dimension within the viewer’s ordinary experiences of light, and to stimulate a dialogue between the ordinary and the extraordinary planes of understanding.

Muth began his studies in art and physics at the University of New Mexico in 1974, and later continued at the University of Houston, and the University of Texas at Austin. In 1980, he began his holographic exploration at The Museum Of Holography in New York under Fred Unterseher. He relocated to the Telluride, Colorado area in 1985 to build his first holographic studio, and spent the next 7 years honing his skills in the Denisyuk single-beam holography technique. In 1994, his studio was reimagined and constructed in Santa Fe, New Mexico where he currently lives and works.
