NanoArt and Nanotechnology - New Frontiers
EGOCREANET c/o Laboratory of Research in Education (LRE) of the Chemical Dept. of the University of Florence will organise during the Italian Week of Science, in March 2008, an open dialog between contemporary art and science, focused on Nanotechnology: NEW FRONTIERS IN SCIENCE&ART AND NANOTECHNOLOGY.

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, 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
One of Orfescu's NanoArt multimedia works will be showed at this event. Similar work could be viewed at http://nanoart.blogspot.com/2007/12/nanoart-by-cris-orfescu.html

"We know that with the nanotechnology, science understanding picked up new interest in the epistemology of forms. On the other hand, contemporary computer art allows new graphic representation and visual aids, in terms of original making structures as a pre-vision in a non-observable dimension", says Manzelli.
Reffering to the quantum mechanical phenomenon in which the quantum states of two or more objects have to be described with reference to each other, even though the individual objects may be spatially separated, Manzelli states: "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".
