"International Digital Exhibition 2006 Opened"
2006-04-29 until 2006-06-11
San Diego Art Institute
San Diego, CA, USA United States of America

The San Diego Art Institute, the Board of Directors and the Honorary Committee for the International Digital Awards Exhibition 2006 (sponsored by SONY) are please to announce the accepted artists into International Digital Exhibition 2006. Cris Orfescu's NanoArt work "Landscape 1" has been selected for the 2006 International Digital Exhibition sponsored by Sony. The exhibition runs at the Museum of the Living Artist, San Diego Art Institute, April 29 - June 11, 2006.

NANOART is a new art form where micro/nano-sculptures created by artists/scientists through chemical/physical processes and/or natural micro/nano-structures are visualized with powerful research tools like Scanning Electron Microscope and Atomic Force Microscope. Since there is no light involved in the creation of the images of these structures/sculptures, Nanoart is different than Photography where the images are created by the particles of light, called photons. Nanoart images are created by different kinds of particles. For example, in Scanning Electron Microscope, the images are created by electrons (electrically charged particles) which penetrate dipper in the structure generating images with more depth, more natural 3D than the photographic images. Artist/scientist Cris Orfescu is taking further steps, mixing the realistic images of the micro/nano-structures with abstract colors, digitally painting the monochromatic electron scans and printing them with archival 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.

Cris Orfescu has been a Premiere Portfolio Member at absolutearts.com since . View more of his work at: www.absolutearts.com/portfolios/c/criorf.
