NANOART is for the 21st Century what Photography was for the 20th Century: cutting edge art. People are always looking for novelty. We live in a technological society and there is no reason for the Arts to stay away from Technology.

NANOART is the expression of the New Technological Revolution and reflects the transition from Science to Art through Technology. We live in a nanotech era and this is going to be around for many decades to come. People are exploring the nano-world hoping to find a better future and there is strong evidence that Nanotechnology is the answer for that. Nanotechnology deals with the synthesis, manipulation, and characterization of the nano-matter (under 100 nanometers; 1 nanometer = 1 billionth of a meter). There are several major technological areas involved in the early stages of development: nanomaterials, nanoelectronics, nanosystems, and nanobiotechnology.

Like any new technology, Nanotechnology can have positive or negative effects on the environment and society. NANOART is meant to educate people about Nanotechnology, so people will focus on the positive effects and redirect the negative ones to benefit from them.

NANOART was born from my interest and background in art, materials science, computer technologies, and nanotechnology. Over the years I have discovered not to many people understand what nanotechnology is all about. As a result of my research into nanotechnology, I decided to experiment and developed a new form of art that is nano-dimensional related and features different structures of several types of materials which are revealed with an electron microscope. I extracted several samples and began to thoroughly prepare these materials and transfer their electron images to my computer in order to design a graphic art form.

As a result, the images created by electrons (electrically charged particles) are different then the photographic images that are created by photons (particles of light). The electron microscope images have more depth and natural 3D look then photographic images. Therefore, I captured the black and white electron microscope images and had them digitally processed, computer painted, and finally printed with archival inks on canvas or/and fine art paper.

My goal is to visualize some of these nanomaterials and create a new form of artistic development showcasing this new art form and educate the public with creative images that are appealing and acceptable. My intention is to create art from scientific images using technological means. I am trying to find analogies in the macroscopic world, one that people can see with the naked eye, so these so called "nano-things" become more appealing and understandable to the public. I felt that I could address the concerns rose by nanotechnological developments with my new art form in order for the general public to understand the value nanotechnology offers in improving the quality of life.
