Holography has a unique ability to record objects, and the volume surrounding them, in such outstanding hi-fidelity that we believe we are seeing those objects, not recordings or facsimiles of them. This provides us with a spatial and temporal transport system, allowing the movement and display of spaces or objects which are not physically 'there'.

This text explores our comfortable assumptions about being in one place and looking into another. It circumnavigates Heidiger's complex observations related to the philosophical aspects of 'being', using, instead, the subliminal simplicity of our own experiences which help us know where we are and where the rest of the world appears to be.

The opportunities for holography to allow objects to be in two places simultaneously is explored, with reference to pioneering artists who have examined, and made visible, some of these opportunities. The holographic 'window' is acknowledged and work by the author using holography and projected light installations, made specifically for the series of Alternative Document exhibitions, is referenced in connection with these observations and the framework of the alternative, ephemeral, document.
