June 1, 2009 - PRLog -- Though Marilyn would have been 82 on June 1st, she’ll always be remembered at her prime for generations to come through her legend, movies and photographs. Eileen Borgeson’s “Marilyn Monroe” E-HoloGram Luminaire celebrates the brief but stellar life of Marilyn Monroe.  It’s a techno-contemporary artistic tribute to an independent woman who rose to the top and kept her grace and beauty.  

“She had a luminous quality -- a combination of wistfulness, radiance, yearning, that set her apart and yet made everyone wish to be part of it, to share in the childlike naiveté which was at once so shy and yet so vibrant.” -- Lee Strasberg

Eileen ‘birthed’ her Marilyn from Tom Kelley’s historic ‘Red Velvet’ photo session of Marilyn 60 years ago on May 27th, 1949 four days before Marilyn turned 23.  One pose from the session made history in the inaugural Playboy Magazine.

“It's not true I had nothing on, I had the radio on”-- Marilyn Monroe commenting on the Red Velvet photo session May 27th 1949

Eileen, an artist living in Hawaii, added a lei and flower to her hair to create a tropical fantasy and accent the innocent demure side of Marilyn.    

“I have too many fantasies to be a housewife.... I guess I am a fantasy.” -- Marilyn

Eileen and Jeff have added luminescence to Marilyn in their latest E-HoloGram Luminaires.  They augmented Marilyn with a dot matrix holographic technique to change her ‘mood’ in every different viewing environment.  

“The luminosity of that (Marilyn Monroe) face! There has never been a woman with such voltage on the screen, with the exception of Garbo.” -- Billy Wilder

Eileen has collaborated with Jeff Allen on ten other E-HoloGrams utilizing many holographic techniques from pulsed laser to projected image holography to manifest Eileen’s artistic visions into 3-D, 4-D and kinetic holographic imagery.  

“Any technology that is significantly advanced…is indistinguishable from magic.”  -- Arthur C. Clark

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

“A hologram is like a window with a memory.” -- Steve Benton, inventor of the rainbow hologram

Vacumet Artist’s Proofs of Eileen’s Marilyn E-HoloGram have been sent to selected magazine publishers for consideration for their cover. This would be a magazine industry first for a ‘celebrity 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 year in which they incorporated her ‘bas-relief’ sculptural holographic art into their design theme.

“If you want to predict the future…invent it!” -- Dennis Gabor, Nobel Prize Winner for Holography

Carol Eisenrauch is Eileen’s and’s media representative.  Carol worked with Tom Kelley Sr. and last fall introduced Eileen and Jeff to his son, Tom Kelley Jr.  Eileen and Tom have ‘teamed’ their 1949 and 2009 copyrights to offer licenses of Eileen’s ‘idealized versions’ of his father’s historic Marilyn from the ‘Red Velvet’ series, including the E-Holograms.

“It’s now in the hands of the artists to evolve holography past technical magic into the realm of visual magic” --Jeff Allen

Peter Sieg, of Maalea Press scanned Eileen’s original drawings of Marilyn Monroe with a scanner also used by the Louvre, Getty Museum and the Smithsonian.  Peter created digital artist proofs of Eileen’s Marilyn in preparation for publishing into the Fine Art Market.   The E-HoloGram Luminaire was made from a digital image of Peter’s Marilyn Artist Proof.

“Marilyn Monroe was a legend. In her lifetime she created a myth of what a poor girl from a deprived background could attain. For the entire world she became a symbol of the eternal feminine.” -- Lee Strasberg
