NanoArt could be for the 21st Century what Photography was for the 20th Century. We live in a technological
society, in a new Renaissance period, and there is no reason for Arts to stay away from Technology. NanoArt is the
expression of the New Technological Revolution and reflects the transition from Science to Art using Technology.
Scientists are exploring the nano world hoping to find a better future and there is evidence that Nanotechnology might be
the answer. Like any new technology, Nanotechnology can have positive or negative effects on the environment and
society. Artists should familiarize the general public with the nano universe, so people will focus on the positive effects
and redirect the negative ones to benefit from them.
was originally downloaded
from
www.nanoart21.org and
manipulated in Photoshop
CS2.

The unsharp mask filter was
applied. Attributes Amount,
Radius, and Threshold were
applied at

maximum outputs each. The
image was then flipped
horizontally and vertically to
create a cascading

visual effect. I used Google
to find out that there are
discrepancies in who actually
invented the microscope.
One source offered Royal Raymond Rife, Ph.D. as the inventor of the
“Rife microscope, an instrument combining very high magnification with coordinated
resolving power.” I reuse this image in Burroughs-like cut-up form, retaining the crude use of
digital child scissors to create the collage effect depicting Rife in all his grainy Depression-era
scientific glory. He is given a modernization, a visual trope, and graced with a futuristic looking
pair of Oakley sunglasses to issue in his newly mediated stature of a founding scholar in the newly
developing field of Nano-imaging.

A new vision of art.
Nanoart is a mix of science, art and technology seen with electron microscopes, atomic force
.These beautiful images on the molecular scale, are treated digitally, colored abstract and printed
on canvas or fine art paper (giclee prints) of different forms to be displayed to an audience of
chemists, physicists, scientists and artists, and many curious people who visit their exhibitions.
There is no light involved in the photographs. The images are created by electrons (electrically
charged particles), generating structure in greater detail.

Landscapes Nanoart is a new discipline of art. That will change, ever.

Using the NanoArt image prescribed I have composed an underwater view in Corel
Photopaint. Another

small image of fishes has been used. I am very fond of macro and micro images of
nature. Microscopic

and molecular images of different types are my favourite collections apart from
landscapes

and seascapes. Nature’s art is deeply appealing and full of artistic qualities,
including textures and cellular

or molecular formations. Although I am not a photographer myself I like to play with
these images.

NanoArt is nature’s art viewed and enriched by an artist’s eye. I subscribe to the
objectives of the

NanoArt movement.

First I applied colors to the black and white image. Then I cut the picture into sections
and re-arranged them on a black background.
I have been following the progress of Nanotechnology for many years. Back in the 80’
s when scientists such as Erik Drexler and Marvin Minsky were writing about this
coming technology, most people had not heard of it. Even many scientists thought it
was a pipe dream. As with all the tools this amazing technology can be used for
constructive as well as destructive purposes: for amazing healing procedures and
deadly weapons as well.
