Since February 23 the library should not only be quiet, but also ... dark. No, no, this is not a game of hide-and-seek or a new quest. An exhibition of art holograms "Holography-2018. Minsk"–"Education. Cognition. Progress" opens there.

It’s really strange, but light can create art only in total darkness. Light waves superposition, photosensitive material and laser beam - and the real volume objects appear in the "black square”, a 3D world is born. You want to open the "boxes" in which they are enclosed, take them in hand and explore.

The exhibition surprises not only the number of exposed holograms (about 150!), but also by thematic diversity. You will find there the Great Patriotic War attributes, Christian relics ("Cross of Euphrosyne of Polotsk", orthodox icon of the Mother of God, "Gifts of the Magi", orthodox icon of the Blessed Virgin), museum values, plants, art-compositions, nature, architecture, animals, space ships, combat aircrafts and much more.

The treasures from the collections of the National Library of Belarus are “recorded” in holograms for the first time: valuable old printed publication "The Bible" by Francysk Skaryna (Prague, 1517–1519), "The Gospel" by Peter Mstislavets (Vilna, 1575), "New Testament and Psalms" (Kutein, 1652).

All exposed holograms are "made in Belarus" and were created by the leading Belarusian enterprises “Magiya Sveta” (Magic of Light) and "Holography Industry", the founder of which is the world-famous scientist Leonid Tanin.

Literally, "holography" is translated as "complete image recording". Indeed, this is not a visual illusion, it is Physics. To not have any doubtsyou should to come and try to understand it. People who know all the secrets of optics and the magical properties of light will help you. The guides will tell you about the history of holography, reveal the secrets of the difference between holograms and other optical illusions, and also prove that physics can be incredibly interesting.

Holography is a young, modern and perspective science. Today it finds application in medicine, space exploration, show business, interior design, advertising and other areas. As for art holograms, it is surely the art of the future. The future that has come today.
