Nano Canyons, nanosculpture by Cris Orfescu

Jurors: Roger Malina is a research astronomer interested in observational cosmology. He is also involved in the connections between the arts and humanities with the technosciences through the Leonardo organizations for which he serves as Member of the Board. He also coordinates the Leonardo publications at MIT Press, is co-chair of the art-science program at IMERA in Marseille, France, and distinguished professor of Physics and Art and Technology at the University of Texas, Dallas, in the United States. Michal Brzezinski is a Polish artist combining software and video with biological material systems, and a culture futurologist. His artistic activity has roots in music subcultures and video art. From 2000 to 2010 his comprehensive artistic and curatorial activity had animated theoretical discourses around video identity in Poland. As a curator he was working with galleries at the Museum of Art in Lodz, the Center for Contemporary Art Laznia in Gdansk, and the Contemporary Art Center Bunkier Sztuki, in Krakow.

Molecular Puzzle, nanosculpture by Cris Orfescu

For the 6th edition of this competition, founded by artist and scientist Cris Orfescu is providing 3 high resolution monochromatic electron scans of nanosculptures created by Orfescu: Nano Canyons, Molecular Puzzle, and Nano Transformers. Participating artists who do not have other possibility to obtain electron microscopy imagery will have to alter 1, 2 or all 3 provided images in any artistic way to create original NanoArt work(s). Consider this a scientist - artist collaboration. However, the artists, scientists, and artists-scientists teams are strongly encouraged to participate with their own images as long as these visualize micro or nanostructures.
