The atomization of Nina Waisman
If airport security were run by Fellini (right now, Kafka's the boss), it might feel a little like walking through Nina Waisman's whimsical, neuron-stirring "Nano 2.0."
That's the working title for an intricate and inventive sound installation that Waisman exhibits in Berlin next month as part of "Particles of Interest: Tales From the Matter Markets," a collaborative work about nanotechnology.
The UCSD-based artist and master's candidate teamed with Diane Ludin, Ricardo Dominguez and Tristan Shone on "Particles" (pitmm.net/), which explores the conflicts between commerce and privacy raised by nanotech - the science of working with tissue and other matter at a molecular level.
