A talk with #NanoArt pioneer, Alessandro Scali

A talk with #NanoArt pioneer, Alessandro Scali | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it
Imagine a superior form of extraterrestrial life, endowed with a higher intelligence, landing on the moon’s surface. The alien picks up a human artefact, the size of half a coke can, and opens it: inside, it’s contained the historic milestones of humanity and its creativity across the millennials.
No, it’s not the opening of the latest Sci-fi blockbuster, but a true future scenario: well, except maybe for a little stretch of imagination, since there is no certain evidence of alien life, to date...

Scientist Deliberately Pirates Art on a Nanoscopic Scale | project developed by Dr Robert Hovden

Copying a song, movie or image without the creator's permission is illegal in many instances, especially so if the infringement is intentional. But what if that piracy is done on a nanoscopic scale, so that infringed works are imperceptible to human senses? How does that affect the artists?

Meet Frederik De Wilde, The Artist Behind "Blacker-Than-Black", The Darkest Color Ever

Meet Frederik De Wilde, The Artist Behind "Blacker-Than-Black", The Darkest Color Ever | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Art is a fickle thing: when it happens, it takes place on multiple levels. Even when it doesn't, it's still every bit as invisible. And art that you can't even see with the naked eye? Don't even get me started—I'd rather let a nano-artist do the talking:

Frederik de Wilde is a creator working at the microscopic vanguard between science and art, an area he describes as “the post sublime.” His work with carbon nanotubes (CNT's) has yielded a color known as “blacker-than-black,” an all-absorbing, nano particle-based lab creation that has simultaneously rendered our prior understanding of the color spectrum insufficient and opened massive avenues of exploration in art, science, and everywhere in between. Featured everywhere from TED to the Belgian Art Museum, the fruits of his labor, provide the sort of shakeup at the intersection between chemistry, physics, and artistry that could change, well, everything.

Grâce à l'impression 3D, l'art passe à l'échelle nano

Grâce à l'impression 3D, l'art passe à l'échelle nano | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Après les designers, les ingénieurs et les prothésistes, c'est au tour des artistes d'explorer le potentiel de l'impression 3D. A New-York, la galerie Winkleman présente actuellement le travail de Shane Hope, un plasticien qui incorpore à ses tableaux des micro-éléménts conçus par ordinateur. Pour comprendre le principe, ne vous fiez pas à l'atmosphère de joyeux fouillis qui se dégage des toiles. Cette nouvelle façon de faire de l'art, baptisée « nanofacture » par son créateur, est en effet d'une précision bluffante.

Grâce à PyMol, un logiciel de modélisation 3D, Shane Hope dessine la structure moléculaire, puis la forme, de milliers de petits élements. Ces derniers deviennent ensuite réalité grâce à des imprimantes RepRap capables de créer des objets à partir de fichiers numériques et de poudre de résine. L'artiste colle enfin ses micro-créations sur des toiles, qui deviennent le support d'une étonnante rencontre entre peinture acrylique et sculpture 2.0. ...

Blue Morph, Intercative Installation - Victoria Vesna and James Gimzewski

Blue Morph is an interactive installation that uses nanoscale images and sounds derived from the metamorphosis of a caterpillar into a butterfly.
Nanotechnology is changing our perception of life and this is symbolic in the Blue Morpho butterfly with the optics involved -- that beautiful blue color is not pigment at all but patterns and structure which is what nano-photonics is centered on studying. The lamellate structure of their wing scales has been studied as a model in the development of fabrics, dye-free paints, and anti-counterfeit technology such as that used in monetary currency. Blue Morpho has intrigued scientists for generations because of its subtle optical engineering that manipulated photons. ...

Nan°art by Alessandro Scali | Creative research & development /// #mediaart #nanoart | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

The collaboration between me and a group of PhD students working at the Polytechnic of Turin, coordinated by Prof. Fabrizio Pirri, Chilab team leader, specialized in micro and nanotechnologies - begins in 2006.

In those 9 years the group realize a series of micro and nanometric artworks representing so far, at national and international level, the exceeding of a limit, of a boundary, of a necessity: that of an art visible to the naked eye. Nanoart plays on the aesthetic paradox of exposing ideas, concepts and artworks  that cannot be seen, nevertheless being not inexistent or unreal.

The success of this radical form of artistic expression is testified not just by the various national and international exhibits (among all, the Biennale of Contempory art of Sevilla in 2008 and Principia Exhibition in Piazza del Duomo, Milan, 2011), but also by the the numberless conferences in Italy, Europe and Canada held by the members of the group (Academy of Sciences and Polytechnic of Turin, Viewfest in Turin, 2009, 2010 and 2013 editions of Technarte conference in Bilbao, University of Barcelona in 2010, Institute of Culture, Toronto, in 2009 among the most relevant events). The crowning of this exploit is represented by an article published on Nature Magazine in September 2007 and the publication of Nanoarte official catalogue edited by Skira, realized during the first Nanoart exhibit in Bergamo, 2007.

Vantablack might not be the world's blackest material (cf Belgian artist Frederik De Wilde) #mediaart

Vantablack might not be the world's blackest material (cf Belgian artist Frederik De Wilde) #mediaart | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Earlier this year, a small British tech company called Surrey NanoSystems announced that they had developed the "world's darkest ever material" called Vantablack, a super-black substance akin to looking into a black hole. As speculation grew about how the material could be used creatively, sculptor Anish Kapoor announced his intentions to start working with it. 


However, Belgian artist Frederik De Wilde claims that he was actually the first to pioneer a super-black material using carbon nanotubes – and that his material is actually even darker than Vantablack. His legal team contacted us regarding our coverage of Surrey NanoSystems' invention, alleging that De Wilde had been working on a similar material for the past decade and has been collaborating with NASA for the last two years. ...

Nanomotors that are controlled, for the first time, inside living cells

Nanomotors that are controlled, for the first time, inside living cells | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Penn State University chemists and engineers have, for the first time, placed tiny synthetic motors inside live human cells in a lab, propelled them with ultrasonic waves, and steered them magnetically.

The Penn State nanomotors are the closest so far to a “Fantastic Voyage” concept (without the miniature people).

The nanomotors, which are rocket-shaped gold rods ~300 nanometers in diameter and ~3 microns long, move around inside the cells, spinning and battering against the cell membrane.

The nanomotors are activated by resonant ultrasound operating at ~4 MHz, and show axial propulsion as well as spinning.

The Role of Images and Art in Nanotechnology by Chris Robinson

The Role of Images and Art in Nanotechnology by Chris Robinson | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

The profusion of images following from the development of nanoscience/technology has coexisted with persistent confusion about how nano images work and what they mean in varying contexts. This article gives insights on some of the more pervasive images, how they can be categorized and what problems have occurred in efforts to use visual information in the exploration and confirmation of the nanoscale.
