One Billionth of a Meter - Artistic Reflections on the World of Nanotechnology

One Millionth of a Meter, by Carol Flaitz

Flaitz's paintings explore the amalgamation of technology and art and reflect our relationship as humans to the barrage of technology in our culture. Originally a ceramic artist, Flaitz has recently combined the organic feel of ceramic glazes with the images from electron microscopy... The results are paintings rich in texture evoking mysterious landscapes of questionable scale. She exhibits her work internationally and recently took part in an exhibition in Cologne, Germany, titled, Planet Earth: Planet Art.

Flaitz, currently of Newburgh, NY, began her artistic career in Alfred as a student of Katherine Nelson and received her BFA at the NYS College of Ceramics. She then went on to receive her MFA in ceramics from the South Glamorgan Institute in Cardiff, Wales.

In parallel with Flaitz's work are exhibited artworks authored by NanoArt21 artists, an international NanoArt organization, whose mission is to raise the public awareness of nanotechnology and its impact on our lives. NanoArt21 was founded by artist and scientist Cris Orfescu of Los Angeles, California, who considers NanoArt as an appealing and effective way to communicate with the general public about new technologies.
