Holography Pioneer Stephen A. Benton

In the late 1980s, Stephen A. Benton began generating synthetic holograms from 3-D digital databases. This video features archive footage of Benton and his early holograms including the iconic 3-D image of a green car floating in front of the Boston skyline. Benton received his undergraduate degree from MIT in electrical engineering and worked with Harold "Doc" Edgerton. Benton, a founding faculty member of the MIT Media Lab, also served as director of the Center for Advanced Visual Studies.
