NanoArt – Atomic / Molecular Sculptures and Landscapes

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.
