"If there is an identifiable trend in holography as an art medium, it is the movement of that medium away from specialist gallery 'ghettos' out into the open. The non-gallery venues are varied, ranging from works placed in natural surroundings, illuminated by sunlight, through specific commissions in new buildings, to multi-media installations which use holograms as one of their elements."

"In 1983, what was billed as the world's first holographic mural appeared in Chicago, USA, on the side of a grocery store.
One 90's equivalent of the holographic mural is Transponder Series, a piece produced in 1992 by American artist Douglas I. Tyler for the engineering building of the Oregon State University.
Another wall based work, this time by German artist Dieter Jung, was recently commissioned by, and installed in, the new European Patent Office, Munich.
Holographic Prism Changer by Doris Vila was installed in 1987 in a new wing of the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's School of Nursing, USA.
This changing effect of lighting conditions has also been exploited by Sally Weber who has completed numerous large-scale holographic installations.
The use of holography in non-gallery situations is not, however, limited to art commissions. The Canadian Pavilion at Expo '92, Seville, Spain, included holographic water walls. Designed by American artist Melissa Crenshaw, these walls incorporated 3,000 square feet of specially produced holographic foil.
In England, the state rail system, British Rail, commissioned British artist Graham Tunnadine to produce a holographic clock for their pavilion at the Gateshead National Garden Festival."
