May 27, 2009 - PRLog -- Eileen Borgeson’s “Marilyn Monroe” E-HoloGram Commemorates Tom Kelley’s historic ‘Red Velvet’ photos of Marilyn 60 years ago.  

The historic images of Marilyn Monroe by Tom Kelley have been brought to life by artist, Eileen Borgeson, collaborating with holographer Jeff Allen, in Eileen’s latest E-HoloGram Luminaires.   One pose made history in the inaugural Playboy Magazine.

Eileen Borgeson incorporated dot matrix holography to offer a holographic luminescence to Marilyn, which changes her ‘mood’ in every different viewing environment.  Eileen ‘birthed’ her Marilyn from the many poses Tom photographed sixty years ago, May 27, 1949.  

Eileen has collaborated with Jeff Allen on ten E-HoloGrams using at least six different holography laboratories and techniques from pulsed laser to projected image hologrpahy.  Since 1971, Jeff has pioneered many of holography’s breakthroughs including embossed holography (used on credit cards and magazine covers) and instant holographic imagery.    

The technologically evolved “Marilyn Monroe” E-HoloGram Luminaires are reminiscent of Eileen’s Erte Luminaires.  While collaborating with Erte (AKA, the Father of Art Deco), Eileen ‘floated’ his images etched into crystal and illuminated.  She now ‘holographically illuminates’ her Marilyn with available or solar light.

Eileen and Jeff collaborated with Joe Formosa and Kizzie Suriel of Vacumet to create this latest HoloGram, for a magazine HoloCover edition version.  This ‘green’ patented technique hologram is recyclable.  Vacumet produced the holographic covers for both the Rolling Stone magazine and TV Guide.

The first two Vacumet Artist’s Proofs of Eileen’s Marilyn E-HoloGram are now at selected magazines for consideration for their cover commemorating the 60 year photo shoot. This would be a magazine industry first for a ‘fine art’ hologram to grace the cover of a major magazine.  Eileen’s last E-HoloGram was for A&E Magazine’s 20th anniversary cover last Feb. 2008 in which they incorporated her ‘bas-relief’ sculptural art into their design theme.

Eileen’s Marilyn E-HoloGram will be licensed under Eileen’s main Marilyn Monroe copyright. Eileen’s media representative, Carol Eisenrauch (who worked with Tom Kelley Sr.) introduced Eileen to his son, Tom Kelley Jr.  They ‘teamed’ their 1949 and 2009 copyrights and now offer art editions and licenses of Eileen’s ‘idealized versions‘ of his father’s historic Marilyn ‘Red Velvet’ series photographs taken May 27, 1949.

Sixty years ago Marilyn showed up at Tom Kelley’s studio to pay back the $5 he had, as a stranger, loaned her when she ran out of gas.  Sensing this could be her last $5 Tom offered her a modeling session right then and there for $50, which she accepted, and as they say…the rest is history.  

“A few photographs have gone beyond simply recording history and have actually played a role in shaping it.” -- Tim Hawkins (Former Playboy Photo Archivist (1987-1997), Past Chair Society of American Archivists Visual Materials Section (1998-1999)

Hugh Hefner (Quote from his Tribute to Marilyn in Playboy Magazine’s January 1987 issue)
“When Playboy published that Tom Kelley nude as our first Playmate of the month (though we called her Sweetheart of the Month in our initial issue), the future of both the actress and the publication seemed assured and were forever after interconnected.”

Quote from Playboy.com
“When Hugh Hefner purchased a nude calendar photo of rising star Marilyn Monroe in 1953, Playboy found its first centerfold and an empire was born.  In fact, Tom Kelley’s enduring portrait of young Marilyn on a red velvet background is among the most famous images of modern culture.”  --
