LEVEL 12 Complete! Last of the Kaleidatrons finally sell at the Holotronica AV weekender March 24th - 26th 2023

 We had a great weekend at The Holotronica AV weekender, We decided to hire the now defunct IMAX theatre that is now run by the Bristol Aquarium. Its a fantastic space and is only used occasionally now for the odd film screening and corporate event.

We ran the same programme over 3 nights The Light Surgeons - Atemporal 2, Funki Porcini and his wonderful Lasarium show and my Holotronica 3D show. I have to say the 3D show never looked so good as it did filling the IMAX screen. The evening was kicked off with DJ Cheeba  AV turntable introduction (Simon Luscombe now working for me at Holotronica as Production Manager.) Simon did a great job performing, organising and tech managing the event wearing many hats and pulled off a great weekend. It was very immersive and the feedback to the event has been great. 

On the merchandise stall at the entrance we had the last 4 kalaeidatrons and im pleased to say they all sold over the weekend 2 on friday and 2 on saturday

Big Thanks to Dan Macaulay-Thomas, Simon Parker, Deeky and Stuart, Maff (The Egg) and Amie.

I dedicated my show to my friend Gardner Post who sadly passed away in March this year. Gardner was co-founder of EBN who inspired myself and many others.

I now have £4096 to spend on level 13, what will i do? will it be a one off artwork or multiple? I certainly won't be making 100 because it took so long to sell 7 years!

Back to the Square and Compass

I decided to make an effort to sell the last Kaleidatrons, I have 30 left and what better place than at the Square and Compass in Worth Matravers, Dorset where it all began.

Chilled Cider is always a very nice get together and its free entry. Great Cider combined with good tunes. The sun was shining which was a bonus, Cider in the sunshine and a fascinating Fossil museum in the pub. After setting up some impromptu Optikinetics Solar 250 psychedelic projectors for fun in the main DJ room I set up the Kaleidatrons and demoed all evening on the first night and managed to sell 5 of them so big thanks to those who purchased. The second day was great when everyone I was having lunch with at The Castle Inn bought them too so sold another 6. This really made my day. So I only have 18 left if your interested in buying one of the last remaining Kaleidatrons please get in touch.

OOM LEVEL 12 - Kaleidatron x 100

 Ive made a new website for all my projects: you can access my creative projects there. OOM, Holotronica, Hexstatic and Holo-Gauze.

I decided to go multiple for this level. I have made 100 Kaleidatrons with the £2048 Jason Bradbury paid me. I hit the budget pretty much exactly and now I have to sell each one for £40.96p available Here on Ebay (£45 to cover ebay charge).  A kaleidatron allows you to paint with light and create amazing kaleidoscope tailback psychedelic patterns. You can change the angle of the mirrors to change the amount of reflections in the image. I recomend playing music with the lights off for full effect!

Here is a video I made, I created an electro track and edited crazy patterns to fit the music.

Be careful playing with lasers !

OOM LEVEL 11 SOLD - Jason Bradbury Of Channel 5's Gadget Show!

I was lucky enough to be asked to go on the Channel 5 Gadget show to use my Hologram effect Holo-Gauze for the Ultimate Selfie Challenge. We filmed the interview and screen at the Cube Cinema in Bristol with TV show presenter Jason Bradbury.

Everything went well and while I was having lunch with Jason and the crew I told Jason about the Orders of Magnitude Challenge. I told him how I was in Level 11 now and had a new invention for sale the 'Holotrope' Jason thought it was a great idea and said he would buy it!. I was extremely pleased as you can imagine.

I then spent a few weeks making the Holotrope work better with the help of LLewelin Gears who are next door to the Cube Cinema. They were able to supply a larger more powerful motor and a specially made flange to connect the hologram to the motor spindle.

I had Niche frames make me a deeper frame for the piece and I put it together.

I delivered the Holotrope to Jason at his agents offices in the West End of London. I was so pleased that he bought it. he told me he wanted to pick it up in his Delorian Time machine(replica) but realised it wasn't road taxed!!! Now that would of been amazing!.

Jason sent me a pic of the Holotrope on his wall at home in Twickenham next to his Robots!

I have £2048 now to spend as my Budget for Level 12. I have decided to go multiple for this next level.

Ill be announcing the next level very soon so stay tuned!!

Orders of Magnitude Level 11


Sold £2048
30th April 2015

Monday 20 October 2014


Apologies for the long delay I have been very busy with my other projects releasing the 3D album Holotronica and the Holo-Gauze screen I invented has been officially launched and is taking off. more info at
For OOM Level 11 I decided to create a larger version of the previous Holographic Zoetrope. This time its 24 inches wide rather than 18 and I want to do something that is more advanced and refined.
I looked on the internet and found a useful video explaining how to use magnets and a read switch to trigger an LED in time with the rotation of the hologram. There is also a description of how to create a focusing tool which allows a potentiometer to control the duration of the flash so you can prevent blurring and get a focussed bright image. you can see the video here... MAKE A HIGH TECH ZOETROPE

I also wanted to make the frame less deep and use a small motor rather than mounting a record deck like the last one. I had a new digital hologram made at Zebra Imaging in Texas. basically the same as before but I made the cubes as wireframe.

The hologram arrived and looks amazing you can see clearly through the cubes to the cubes behind and because the hologram is so large the cube wireframe lines are much higher res than I was expecting.

I decided to get the Hologram Laser cut as its best that its circular. Michelle who helped laser cut the black perspex on the last level helped again. she has access to a very powerful laser cutter.

Wow! 200 Watt Laser
To put this in perspective a high power laser you get at a dance event would be around 1 watt.

Michelle create a circular path for the laser with dedicated software

Then lined up the hologram

I was quite nervous. The hologram company told me that they had never laser cut a hologram before and to let them know how it goes. This project will end if this went wrong and we destroy a £1000 hologram.


The Hologram was cut perfectly to the millimetre. I was very impressed and happy!

I had a frame specially made at Niche frames again with specially low reflective glass.

 I exhibited the OOM project along with my other projects at Kinetica Art Fair Old Truman Brewery, Brick Lane, E1, London 17th -19th October 2014. I printed and mounted out all of the levels and displayed them along with the rules and map of OOM. The story unfolded around the stand and at the end you arrive at Level 11 with a sign saying. 'You Are Here' and a question mark where the buyers pic should be. For Sale £2048. The hologram was spinning inside the frame at 30rpm. I had a strobe mounted on the ceiling and it created an animation of cubes rotating outwards towards the viewer.

I had a brilliant response from the hundreds of people who came. It was exclusively on offer to Kinetica attendees and there was also a glimpse of whats to come in Level 12. Big Thanks to Tracie and Matt for helping out it was a great weekend.

Level 11 didn't sell so is still available.
Contact me if you want to buy it

OOM Stats and Map 50% Completed

So here we are, I'm half way. 10 out of 20 levels completed . The project starts to get very interesting now as the money starts to escalate fast and therfor the artworks will in theory get exponentially more elaborate.

Im not sure how much longer I can keep making one piece at a time there will be a time when I'll have to start making multiples but for now I'm sticking to my guns.

I have had so much positive feedback about this project so thank you to everyone who has followed it and taken part.. Please tell your friends they could become a part of this and invest in some interesting creations that one day may be worth many times what they are being sold for here....

LEVEL10 Strobe Gun

I want to introduce you to Alex Relph who is a friend from London who now lives in Frome, Wiltshire. Alex has a metalwork workshop/studio where he makes bespoke metal sculptures, furniture and well anything you require as long as its, well, metal. I needed his help converting the strobe that I had for Level 10. As you remember the strobe needed to be focused on the Holographic Zoetrope rather than lighting the whole room.

We started by taking a sheet of thin steel and cutting it which produced a nice fireworks display.

Then he bent it into shape.

He then riveted a base plate

and we screwed it to the strobe. I was happy and  In return I gave Alex a copy of the Holotronica album in CD/DVD format with a couple of pairs of anaglyph 3D glasses. he was happy with this and he thought it was amazing after seeing it. The album btw official release is April 14th. This blog is becoming a vehicle for plugging the album, I didn't intend this its just become a happy accident.

I sprayed the strobe black and inserted a fresnel lense in the front. I cut the lense from a reading magnifying glass that I bought while with Seth in Brighton.

I have dropped off the strobe with Seth and I look forward to see a photo of it set up in situe. Ill post that when I get it.

You can check Alex Relph's work out on his website, he's very good.
