Daily Discoveries at the Nexus of Art, Science, Technology, and Culture—Join Us!

AI art and biohacks that ponder posthumanism, CGI fever dreams that (further) distort reality, software that speaks truth to power: HOLO explores critical creative practice that emerges between art, science, technology, and society—a space of radical imagination where new ideas and cultural paradigms are born. Join us for daily discoveries by becoming a HOLO Reader.
As a Reader, you enjoy full access to HOLO’s vast content library, including archival pieces from sold out print editions and newly commissioned works:
  • Research: read longform analysis and critical commentary from brilliant thinkers like James Bridle, Geoff Manaugh, and Georgina Voss
  • Profiles: enter the studios of pioneers and innovators such as Vera Molnar, Mary Maggic, David OReilly, Semiconductor, and many others
  • Timeline: browse the HOLO news archive (1,200+ entries and counting) in its entirety
By becoming a HOLO Reader, you also ensure that independent publishing not only survives but thrives: your support funds ad-free public content and helps pay our talented contributors—artists, designers, writers, photographers—equitably. It allows us to invest in new features, more formats, and widen our coverage across the board.

The Annual Collector’s Edition

Every year, HOLO issues a special collector’s edition that captures the calendar year in print. Collectors receive it automatically with free shipping in the first quarter of the following year. E.g. if you join before 10/10/2022 you will receive the collector’s edition in early 2023.

The Archives (2014–2020)

Adding the content from HOLO’s past print editions—essays, artist profiles, illustrated fiction—online is currently in progress. Readers can expect to have access to the majority of HOLO’s archival pieces by the end of 2022.
