Dora Tass si laurea in Antropologia Culturale presso la Sapienza di Roma, in seguito si iscrive all’ Accademia di Belle Arti di Roma frequentando il corso di pittura poi dedicarsi da autodidatta alla lavorazione artistica di metalli. Dal 2006 si interessa al medium dell’olografia ed inizia un percorso di ricerca artistica in solitario. Nel 2012 viene invitata a partecipare all’ International Symposium Display Holography presso il MIT.lab, come unica rappresentante italiana. In tale occasione viene a contatto con tutta la community internazionale olografica, ed inizia a collaborare in particolare con l’artista olografo August Muth nel suo laboratorio “The Light Foundry” a Santa Fe ( New Mexico, USA) dove tuttora svolge la sua attività artistica in duo con il nome Dora August.

August Muth (b. 1955 in Albuquerque, New Mexico)
For more than 30 years Muth has been an internationally exhibiting artist and a pioneer in the exploration of light through holography. His interest in light began at the age of 16 when he began making large water-filled glass prisms, which he used to refract prismatic light upon his family’s garage door. In 1973 he left Albuquerque to work as a jewelry maker in Aspen, Colorado, where he became captivated by the light of opals and diamonds. Upon returning to Albuquerque the following year, he began his studies in art and physics at the University of New Mexico, and later continued at the University of Houston, and the University of Texas at Austin.
Muth moved to New York City in 1978 to begin walking the path as an artist. In 1980 he began his holographic exploration at The Museum Of Holography in Soho under Fred Unterseher. He relocated to the Telluride, Colorado area in 1985 to build his first holographic studio, and spent the next 7 years honing his skills in the Denisyuk single-beam holography technique. During this time his interest in the relationship between light, space, and time intensified, requiring a studio expansion. In 1994 his studio was reimagined and constructed in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
In Santa Fe the desire to produce larger holograms became a priority, and for the next several years he spent thousands of hours developing techniques in this quest. Trial and failure became a large part of his practice since large-scale single-beam holograms had never been produced by anyone previously. After a pivotal insight which resulted in the discarding and total metamorphosis of previously learned processes, he was able to create holograms in a greater scale. Muth continues to produce works exploring the light-space-time continuum in his Santa fe, New Mexico studio.
Light is the faithful archivist of time.
