Nanotechnology art as anti-counterfeiting technology

Abstract:
Nanotechnology meet art meet anti-counterfeiting technology. Imagine an art gallery full of art that nobody can see not even the artists who created it. Paintings, drawings, and sculptures so small that it is impossible to view with the naked eye. It s called Nanoart and it is lending more proof that beauty really is in the eye of the beholder.

Artist J Sha teamed with ARmark Authentication Technologies, LLC in Pennsylvania, to unveil what is believed to be the world s smallest piece of flat artwork. Fish is the first of several works and commissions to be created in 2007. At a mere 40 microns tall with features as small as 250 nanometers, Fish is smaller than a spec of dust and 1/8th the width of a strand of hair.
