Are Hologram Tupac and Hologram Freddie Mercury Nostalgia or New Aesthetic?

Everyone has already heard about the Tupac Hologram that played at Coachella earlier this year. But with Queen’s recent announcement of a Hologram Freddie Mercury and TLC’s plans for a Hologram Lisa Left Eye Lopes, it looks Hologram pop stars are here to stay. At first glance it might seem like this is just more of the same old nostalgia, but we think these Holo-Popstars represent something much bigger and entirely new. They are the heralds of New Aesthetic, a hotly debated new art movement dedicated to the blending of art and technology.
