NanoArt online competition of 2008

Like last year, the NanoArt International Online Competition has started. In case you don't remember, NanoArt is 'a new art discipline related to micro/nanosculptures created by artists/scientists through chemical/physical processes and/or natural micro/nanostructures that are visualized with powerful research tools like Scanning Electron Microscope and Atomic Force Microscope.' You can vote until March 31, 2008 for your preferred NanoArt works. You can choose from 121 pictures sent by 37 nanoartists from 13 countries and 4 continents. But read more to discover my favorite NanoArt works...

Like last year, the NanoArt International Online Competition has started. In case you don't remember, NanoArt is 'a new art discipline related to micro/nanosculptures created by artists/scientists through chemical/physical processes and/or natural micro/nanostructures that are visualized with powerful research tools like Scanning Electron Microscope and Atomic Force Microscope.' You can vote until March 31, 2008 for your preferred NanoArt works. You can choose from 121 pictures sent by 37 nanoartists from 13 countries and 4 continents. But read more to discover my favorite NanoArt works...

I've looked carefully to all the works and I have chosen four nanoartworks. There is no particular hierarchy in the mini-gallery shown below: I like equally all these works.

Renata Spiazzi: Nano Depths

Surprisingly, like last year, one of my favorite pictures has been created by Renata Spiazzi. This piece is called "Nano Depths." Spiazzi says that this image was "created with several overlapping of fractals and then the image seed of the Nano. The programs used were Apophysis, Ultrafractal and Photoshop plus filters from the KPT group." (Credit and copyright: Renata Spiazzi; link to a larger version)

Teresa Majerus: Eye of science

Now, here is a work of Teresa Majerus (Kreska) called "Eye of science." Majerus wrote: "Rather than use the image nanoflower.pdf as a basis for the further electronic manipulation, I decided to use it as inspiration for an acrylic painting on canvas. The painted canvas shows a view of the nanoworld seen from the particle perspective. We can clearly recognize the eye of the scientist looking via microscope onto the complex but beautiful structure. In her/his iris our world is reflected, which in the same time appears to be the core of nanospace." (Credit and copyright: Teresa Majerus; link to a larger version)

David Derr: Echoes

Then, you can see above a work of David Derr who wrote: "This piece was created in Photoshop and has 9 Layers. Layer 1 - a macro photo of peacock feathers, the brown parts and breast, not the more usual parts that are photographed, this layer is at 51% transparency. Layer 2 - seed image of nanocrystals, color enhanced, with the layer filterset at Difference at 11%." (Credit and copyright: David Derr; link to a larger version)

Steven Pollard: GLuminosityL

My fourth vote went to Steven Pollard for "GLuminosityL (Genesis Nano Luminosity)." Pollard writes: "GLuminosityL stands for the background photo of one of my digital images, Genesis, and two layers, one luminosity and one Linier light (I think)_and then the nano image in various layer modes all in photoshop CS3." (Credit and copyright: Steven Pollard; link to a larger version)

Please remember that you can vote until March 31, 2008. I wish you a happy visit to the NanoArt 2007 gallery.
