Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd Hologram Pioneer

IN HONOUR OF Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd 

 One of the first artists in the world using Laser & Holography. 

Known for his sculpture, Non-Violence, an idea Carl Fredrik developed to mark the tragic event, the murder of John Lennon, December 1980.

Hologram CFR

In 1986 I involved Carl Fredrik in a project with a Swedish daily paper using embossed holograms at the front cover. His model builder in Italy made a model of a gun with a knot in scale 1:1. The holographer Laurence Holding produced the hologram master and the shim, which were used for the embossing tool, and so on in the long production process before ICA Förlaget, Västerås Sweden applied 325.000 self adhesive holograms at the daily papers. A really tuff pioneer job for all of us!
