Tuesday, 09 March 2010 00:00 - Nanºart - seeing the invisible http://nanoyou.eu//index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=268:nanoart-seeing-the-invisible&catid=78:images-and-art&directory=85 Nan°art is an art project produced by artists Alessandro Scali and Robin Goode in collaboration with the physics department at the Politecnico di Torino.

In the artists' words, "to establish a contact with that parallele, invisible and for most of us unknown world means, for art, to discover surprising and powerful technologies and revolutionary ways of expression that promote the development of new asthetic approaches, alternative points of view, different interpretations of the world.

"The collision – or to better say the meeting – of art with nanotechnology brings to the creation of artworks most of the times unaccessible to human eyes, that represents a concrete aesthetic paradox: an invisible visual art."

In the Nanºart website you will see some images of artworks done at the micro and the nanoscale which have been part of several exhibitions. You can also visit the projects blog or see a video on the creation of one of their artworks.

On their web portal, not only can you find news on nanotechnology, but you will also be able to visit a gallery of artistic nano pictures and a gallery illustrating the tools used in nanotechnology research.]]> Thu, 08 Oct 2009 07:37:46 +0100 Wednesday, 07 October 2009 11:44 - Nanomandala http://nanoyou.eu//index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=128:nanomandala&catid=78:images-and-art&directory=85 Nanomandala is an interactive installation created in collaboration by Victoria Vesna, media artist and Professor at the department of Design of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), and James Gimzewski, Professor of Chemistry at the UCLA. There are several pictures and videos of the installation available on their website.

The installation consists of a projected video onto an eight feet wide circle of sand, evolving in scale from the molecular structure of a single grain of sand and back again to the mandala. These images were achieved with a scanning electron microscope (SEM). 

This work was inspired by ancient Eastern traditions and aims to illustrate how cultures make use of bottom-up building practices to create a complex picture of the world from extremely different prespectives.]]>

Wednesday, 16 September 2009 11:39 - SPMage - Nanotechnology http://nanoyou.eu//index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=107:spmage-images-nanotechnology-resources-education&catid=78:images-and-art&directory=85 SPMage is an international contest that selects the most beautiful images from the nanoworld. These atomic scale images of particles and matter are made with Scaning Probe Microscopes. These tools have enabled scientists to lead ahead in research. SPMage aims to recognise the importance of such contributions that have led to many initiatives within the world of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology.

On their website, there is a gallery with amazing images from previous editions of the contest.

Wednesday, 16 September 2009 10:07 - NANO - Nanotechnology exhibition http://nanoyou.eu//index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=105:nano-nanotechnology-art-resources-education&catid=78:images-and-art&directory=85 NANO presents the world of nanoscience through an interactive aesthetic experience. The exhibition is brought to you in collaboration by LACMALab and the UCLA team of nanoscience, media arts, and humanities experts.

The exhibition not only merges the fields of science and culture, but also reinforces art and technology. "Nano" components were designed to provide visitors with an immersion of sensory modes and fluctuations in scale up to a billionth of a meter, which are characteristic of nanoscience. Visitors are encouraged to participate in artistic creations of their own through activities that provide them with a feeling similar to that of manipulating atoms.

Videos and pictures of the installations can be found on this website.
