In 2004, Chris Levine was commissioned to commemorate the Isle of Jersey’s 800th year of allegiance to the crown in a holographic portrait, a process that involved an extraordinary technological array: a high-resolution digital camera which moved along a rail taking 200 images over eight seconds, a 3-D data scanner and a medium format camera which he could use, if necessary, to capture information he could texture-map onto the 3-D data sets.
Two sittings took place with Her Majesty where she was required to sit still for 8 seconds at a time. To create a three-dimensional portrait, over 10,000 images were made. Equanimity was the first holographic portrait of the Queen.
In June 2012, Chris Levine’s Equanimity was chosen as the cover of TIME magazine.
