During the months of September and October, Cris Orfescu was invited to show some of his NanoArt works in two galleries, in France.
Orfescu's work is a reflection of the new technological revolution, and is aimed to raise the public awareness about the Nanotechnology and its impact on our lives. The Romanian-born American artist founded the NanoArt movement a few years ago, and is showing his works in galleries all over the world.
NanoArt at the Five Continents Artists Meeting in Paris, France
Paris, France | Posted on August 16th, 2007
NanoArt is a new art discipline related to the micro or nanosculptures created by artists or/and scientists through chemical or/and physical processes and visualized with powerful research tools like
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scanning_electron_microscope scanning electron microscopes and
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atomic_force_microscope atomic force microscopes. The scientific images of these structures are captured from the advanced microscopes mentioned above and further processed using different artistic techniques to convert them into artworks showcased for a large audience. NanoArt should not be confused with microphotography which is performed using an
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Optical_microscope optical microscope with a photographic camera attached to it and renders flat images at low magnification. The depth and three dimensions achieved in NanoArt sets this imaging process apart from
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Photography Photography where images are created by photons (particles of light) rather than by electrons (electrically charged particles) as in NanoArt. The electrons penetrate deeper inside the structure creating images with more depth, more natural 3D-look than the photographic images.
The Five Continents Artists Meeting is organized by the French artists association Les Seize Anges. Two art exhibitions will take place during the event. The first one will be hosted by Atelier Grognard, one of the main cultural centers in Rueil-Malmaison, positioned in the vicinity of the Malmaison Castle, the house of Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte. Prestigious exhibitions have taken place here: Dali, Chagall and Weisbush in 2005/2006, Picasso, Matta and Malraux in 2007. The second show will be hosted by the Villepinte Espace V gallery. There will be two artist receptions on:
Sept 13th Opening at Villepinte with Martine Valleton, Mayor
Sept 14th Opening at Rueil with Patrick Ollier, Rueil Mayor and President of the French Parliament
