Tove Noorjahaan Dalenius is a practising artist who has just completed her doctoral research focusing on Digital and Analogue holography as an art form at De Montfort University. She is using a Practice-Based Research methodology, to realise transdisciplinary exploration at the intersection of art, technology and science.

Tove is investigating the use of Direct-write digital holography (DWDH) (Zacharovas), also described as Synthetic Holography (Desbiense), as an artistic medium, in particular in interplay with data visualisation and scientific visualisation. She contributes to technological development in the field through actively creating new artwork pushing the boundaries and understanding of the technology. 

Tove publishes technical and artistic contributions in the field of holography, for example at the International Symposium of Display holography ISDH and Practical Holography Materials and Applications conference which forms part of SPIE’s Photonics West.

In 2014 Tove instigated a research project investigating holographic data visualisation of computational fluid dynamics together with a team from the Institute of Energy and Sustainable Development and Holography and the Imaging and Displays Research Group as part of a proof-of-principle project funded through the Higher Education Innovation fund.

Tove Dalenius earned her first degree in Fine Art concentrating on experimental video and exhibited her early work in the UK, Sweden and South America in the late eighties.  She completed her MSc at the Institute of Creative Technologies in 2013 with Distinction.
