Intro

A magazine about emerging trajectories in art, science, and technology

Towering installations visualize scientific data, projectors beam kaleidoscopic animations onto sculptural forms, responsive 3D-printed environments mimic life—as consumer electronics become indistinguishable from science fiction, contemporary artists and designers are prototyping fantastical futures before our very eyes.

HOLO is a biannual window into their world: 200+ pages of personal encounters with leading practitioners, visits to key studios and institutions around the world, analysis from prominent thinkers and niche experts—each issue of HOLO is a thorough record of timely trends and paradigms, mixing long-form journalism with striking photography in premium print.

FAQ

Unless otherwise noted, items are shipped via priority mail from our distribution hub in Berlin and tracking numbers are NOT available. Orders will be mailed within a week of being placed: shipping within the EU takes 5-10 business days, orders to North America take 2-3 weeks, and shipping to the rest of the world can take 2-5 weeks.
When organizing our fulfillment, we did extensive research and determined that the most cost-effective solution was to ship out of Germany via Deutsche Post Priority Mail, where we pay a flat rate for worldwide mailing.
No, it would be prohibitively expensive to ship worldwide at express speeds. At the moment we only offer express shipping for wholesale or bulk orders.
We ship via Deutsche Post Priority and this service does not provide tracking numbers.
To update your address, email your new mailing address to orders@holo-magazine.com (and be sure to include a phone number) and we will note your new info in our database.
Yes, to order via cheque, email orders@holo-magazine.com and provide your complete billing (and shipping) address. Make sure to indicate if you would like a single issue or a subscription. We will email you an invoice and you should then mail a cheque (made out to ‘HOLO’) to our Toronto PO Box— we will ship your order when we receive the cheque.
No, but our sister publication CreativeApplications.Net is always buzzing with activity, please check out our writing there. At the moment there are no plans for a digital version of HOLO, but that may change in the future.
Absolutely, we offer discounts for orders of 5 copies of HOLO or more. Please get in touch with us at info@holo-magazine.com for more information about bulk orders.
Not in the traditional sense. We do not sell ‘ads’ but are open to partnerships with arts organizations and companies with activities, initiatives, or products relevant to our milieu. If you’d like to become a patron of HOLO, please get in touch with us at info@holo-magazine.com.
