NanoArt 2009 - 2010 International Exhibition
The NanoArt 2009 - 2010 International Exhibition featuring 154 artworks submitted by 48 artists representing 16 countries is now officially open. Please visit the exhibition at: http://nanoart21.org/nanoart2006/index.php A record number of works related to Nanoscience and Nanotechnology are displayed in the NanoArt21 online gallery. All these works were submitted to the 4th edition of the NanoArt International Online Competition. I noticed at this time a triple record number of participation in artworks as well as artists and countries. This is a good indication of the amplitude of the NanoArt movement and the major progress made by this new art discipline in the last few years. Since I don't want to influence the jury, I will present in this article some of the works from last year's competition, authored by artists with intense participation at the previous editions.
|David Derr, ‘Invention, Op. 17, Where No Man Has Gone’|
|Anna Ursyn, ‘Inner Swirl’|
