FREE Entries - Open to All Artists and Scientists - Electron Microscope Seed Images of Nanostructures are Provided for Further Artistic Creation

NanoArt 2007 International online competition

LOS ANGELES, CA | Posted on December 12th, 2007

NanoArt is a new art form where micro or nanosculptures created by artists or scientists through chemical or/and physical processes are visualized with powerful research tools like Scanning Electron Microscopes. The monochromatic electron microscope scans are processed further using different artistic techniques to create pieces of art that can be showcased for the general public. To read more about NanoArt and Nanotechnology please visit

Because this is a new art form, founded by artists/scientist Cris Orfescu ( will provide 3 high resolution monochromatic electron scans (click on the thumbnails bellow to download) for competitors to choose from. The participating artists will have to alter this image in any artistic way to finish the artistic-scientific process and create a NanoArt work. The artists or scientists are encouraged to participate with their own image as long as this visualizes micro or nano structures. Please provide details about the artistic process in the application form (scroll down to download).
