One of Cris Orfescu's NanoArt multimedia works will be showed at the University of Florence, Italy, during the Italian Week of Science, at the beginning of March 2008, featuring an open dialog between contemporary art and science, focused on NanoArt and Nanotechnology. "My art is a reflection of the technological movement. I consider NanoArt to be a more appealing and effective way to communicate with the general public and to inform people about the new technologies of the 21st Century" - comments Orfescu about his work. Cris Orfescu has been a Premiere Portfolio Artist at absolutearts.com since 2004.
Principal themes to be discussed during this event are:
1. The scientific imaginary and aesthetics of contemporary art in growing up knowledge economy.
2. The development of nanoscience and new forms of artistic fruition in contemporary era.
Dr. Paolo Manzelli, the Director of LRE/EGO-CreaNet, the organization which sponsors the event, hopes to receive a broad cooperation in achieving a shared program for improving a trans-disciplinary dialogue between science and art by paying special attention to the development of Nanotechnology and NanoArt, in collaboration with NanoArt21 founded by Cris Orfescu - http://www.nanoart21.org
"The entanglement between science and art, working in a trans-disciplinary profile of innovative development in nanotechnology manufacturing, will furnish new areas of complementary research and an innovative professionalism in science and art that can be able to recover the ancient creative tradition of Florentine Renaissance, historically mediated by a unitary cooperation between Art, Science, and Technology", Manzelli says.
