The Art of Nanotech

Abstract:
By day, Christian Orfescu relies on his training in materials science to run the analytical laboratory at Caleb Technology, a small company in Torrance, Calif., that is using nanotechnology to design improved lithium batteries. When the work day ends, though, Mr. Orfescu's enthusiasm for the technology bubbles over into his other persona — Cris Orfescu, abstract artist.

Like other artists, Mr. Orfescu, 51, has had many inspirations for his paintings, printmaking and other projects. But the molecular landscapes of various materials, where features are measured nanometers, became a preoccupation in recent years and the jumping off point for his art. So much so, in fact, that Mr. Orfescu began calling his works "nanoart" and, in 2006, organizing annual competitions for other similarly inclined artists.
