Project Description

NANOART is a new art discipline related to micro/nanosculptures created by artists/scientists through chemical/physical processes and/or natural micro/nanostructures that are visualized with powerful research tools like Scanning Electron Microscope. NanoArt is not Photography. The depth and three dimensions achieved in NanoArt sets this process of electron imaging apart from Photography where images are created by photons (particles of light) rather than by electrons (electrically charged particles). The electrons penetrate deeper in the structure creating images with more depth, more natural 3D-look than the photographic images. I bring the small world in front of my audience through high resolution electron microscope scans of natural micro or nanostructures and sculptures I create at micro or nano scale by physical or/and chemical processing. I take further steps by mixing the realistic images of this structures with abstract colors, digitally painting and manipulating the monochromatic electron scans, and finally printing them with long-lasting inks on canvas or fine art paper (giclee prints). This way, the scientific images become artworks and could be showcased for a large audience to educate the public with creative images that are appealing and acceptable.
NanoArt is a more appealing and effective way to communicate with the general public and to inform people about the new technologies of the 21st Century. NanoArt should make the public aware of Nanotechnology and how will this impact our lives.

The artist created a nanosculpture by hydrolyzing a tiny drop of a silicon organometallic compund and coating the structure with Gold in order to be properly visualized with a Scanning Electron Microscope. The monochromatic scan has been painted digitally and the final image was printed on canvas with long-lasting (archival) inks.
