The online exhibition NanoArt 2008-2009 is open now for public viewing. 33 artists from 10 countries around the world submitted works for this competition. The judges, Jeanne Brasile, artist, director, and primary curator of the Walsh Gallery at the Seton Hall University and Rocky Rawstern, artist and consultant, former editor of Nanotechnology Now, awarded with the 2005 Foresight Institute Prize in Communication, will have to pick the winners out of 104 NanoArt works. Winners will be notified and published online after March 31, 2009. The nanoart21.org site was founded by artist and scientist Cris Orfescu who has been a Premiere Portfolio Artist at absolutearts.com since 2004.
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). These structures are visualized with powerful research tools like scanning electron microscopes and atomic force microscopes and their scientific images are captured and further processed by using different artistic techniques to convert them into artworks showcased for large audiences.
All submitted works will be exhibited until March 31, 2009 on the nanoart21.org site, founded by artist and scientist Cris Orfescu (www.crisorfescu.com and http://www.absolutearts.com/nanoart), together with artist's name, a short description of the artistic process, and the artist's website and e-mail. The top 10 artists will be exhibited on nanoart21.org site for one full year and will be invited to exhibit at the 3rd edition of The International Festival of NanoArt. The previous editions of the festival were held in Finland and Germany.
