Nano-art

Abstract:
On Sunday I wrote about a new show in Grinnell, which explores the relationship between art and 10 molecules that changed the course of the 20th century.

The last molecule in the series, bucminsterfullerene, plays a big part in emerging nanotechnology. But a British artist is taking the teeny-tiny particles in a new direction, according to a great profile in today's Wall Street Journal:

"Small is big, and not just for Mr. (Willard) Wigan. Craftsmen in India, China and elsewhere have been carving or writing on grains of rice and sand for years. But now a handful of artists are going smaller still, often applying the tools of nanotechnology to control matter at a molecular level."
