Description

The Kiss II” is a multiplex hologram created by Lloyd Cross in 1975. This particular copy was produced by Peter Claudius in the 1980s. It was previously owned by New York’s Museum of Holography, which was forced to close in 1992 due to financial failure. The hologram is now part of a private collection in Buffalo, New York—whose owners sought out conservation treatment. The primary condition concerns are instability and dirt and dust accumulation. In addition to addressing condition concerns, this project aims to improve upon the imaging and preventative protocol for holograms. Although there is much research available on the technology of holograms, there is very little information available regarding the conservation treatments of Multiplex holograms. The steps taken throughout the course of this project have been thoroughly documented to lay the groundwork for a suggested protocol for treating Multiplex holograms.
