NANOART is a new art form where micro/nano-sculptures created by artists/scientists through chemical/physical processes and/or natural micro/nano-structures are visualized with powerful research tools like Scanning Electron Microscope and Atomic Force Microscope. Since there is no light involved in the creation of the images of these structures/sculptures, Nanoart is different than Photography where the images are created by the particles of light, called photons. Nanoart images are created by different kinds of particles. For example, in Scanning Electron Microscope, the images are created by electrons (electrically charged particles) which penetrate dipper in the structure generating images with more depth, more natural 3D than the photographic images. Artist/scientist Cris Orfescu is taking further steps, mixing the realistic images of the micro/nano-structures with abstract colors, digitally painting the monochromatic electron scans and printing them with archival inks on canvas or fine art paper (giclee prints). This way, the scientific images become artworks and could be showcased for a large audience to educate the public with creative images that are appealing and acceptable.
