Nanotechnology Artist - Murray Robertson

Abstract:
Hank Pellissier
Ethical Technology

I first encountered the meticulous, gorgeous nanotechnology and molecular computer art of Murray Robertson in 2009, while perusing jpegs at the Foresight Institute's online Nanomedicine Gallery. My favorite image was vibrant and visionary; it depicted a glorious techno-future where minuscule robots navigate our bloodstreams, to silently combat viruses, toxins, free radicals, fungi and other malevolencies.

Seeking additional nano-fun, I emailed Robertson; he referred me to another collection of his painstaking work, where I browsed joyfully, eventually acquiring my four favorite prints. Murray, I learned, is Scottish, he's been visualizing his scientific ideas since 1998, and he's a "Master Studio Printer" at the Glascow Print Studio. Two of his notable projects - "A Visual Interpretation of the Table of Elements" and the ChemSoc Timeline - were created for the UK's Royal Society of Chemistry; his client list also includes Scottish Television and the BBC Visual Effects Department.

I'm not going to be in the British isles this spring, but if I was, I'd attend Murray's upcoming show, Observations, that he's presenting with a science-and-art cohort, Jim Pattison. Their exhibition will be in the Glasgow Print Studio Gallery, from March 9th - April 8th.
