Nano and Art: Leonardo/ISAST cooperation with NanoWiki

Posted on February 9th, 2010

"The critical challenges of the 21st century require mobilization and cross-fertilization among the domains of art, science and technology. Leonardo/ISAST fosters collaborative explorations both nationally and internationally by facilitating interdisciplinary projects and documenting and disseminating information about interdisciplinary practice." From Leonardo/ISAST Mission.

Currently, "Leonardo, the Journal of the International Society of the Arts, Sciences and Technology, is seeking to publish papers and artworks on the intersections of chemistry, nanotechnology and art for our on-going special section on nanotechnology and the arts. With this special section of Leonardo, we hope to ignite artists' interest in the exploration of nanotech/nanoscience and encourage scientists, scholars and educators to contemplate the implications of an art-nanotech/nanoscience connection. Leonardo, in collaboration with the Exploratorium under the auspices of the Nanotech Informal Science Education Network, will publish a series of special sections periodically over the next 5 years exploring the intersections of nanotech/science and art." From Nanotechnology, Nanoscale Science And Art.

In this framework, Leonardo/ISAST begin a cooperation with NanoWiki in the publication of capsules tagged "art", providing one new item a month; an abstract of a paper either accepted or published in one of the Leonardo journals or a related news that deal with nano and art. NanoWiki is a digital online publication, developed in the frame of NanoAracat, to track the evolution of paradigms and discoveries in nanoscience and nanotechnology field, annotate and disseminate them, giving an overall view and feed the essential public debate on nanotechnology and its practical applications.

This is the first post resulting from this cooperation of Leonardo with NanoWiki, send by Roger Malina from a call of Victoria Vesna and edited by NanoWiki team: SciArt NanoLab.
