NanoArt – Atomic / Molecular Sculptures and Landscapes, Cris Orfescu, δημοσίευση στο Interalia MagazineMarilena Pateraki
NanoArt is a new art discipline at the art-science-technology intersections. It features nanolandscapes (molecular and atomic landscapes which are natural structures of matter at molecular and atomic scales) and nanosculptures (structures created by scientists and artists by manipulating matter at molecular and atomic scales using chemical and physical processes). The work of Cris Orfescu, an artist and scientist, is a reflection of this technological movement.
“NanoArt is a glimpse into an unbelievably tiny world that only a small number of scientists have viewed. For the average person, the realm of nanotechnology — that is, structures smaller than a billionth of a meter — is as remote and inaccessible as the moon. But nanoartist Cris Orfescu wanted to change that. He created the NanoArt Exhibition to share the beauty of the nano-world with those of us living in the macro-world… Although you may be interested in learning what the image is, Orfescu wants the public to see the nanoworld independent of its source, for just its simple beauty” (Discovery News)
“...artists face a fundamental hurdle trying to represent the molecular landscapes of various materials, where features are measured in nanometers… For abstractionists like Mr. Orfescu though, such limitations are simply invitations to let color and shape-shifting run wild.” (The New York Times)
“Artist and scientist Cris Orfescu manipulates chemicals and creates nano-sculptures, which he then blows up into large artworks with a scanning electron microscope.” (The Wall Street Journal)
