I'm fairly sure that he was involved with the original Museum, and that
is why you have so many of those Holographs from the late 1970's and
1980's. I'd have to think that over time that the technique and
technology has made some fairly decent strides.
Computer generated diffraction grids, have to be fairly decent in
producing fantasy productions et al.
We can all get together and make NYLXS Holographic portrait.
