The NanoArt contest

If you don't know what to do this Sunday, you should visit the NanoArt gallery and vote for your preferred nanoartwork. But what is NanoArt? This 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 on 71 works submitted by 22 artists until March 31, 2007.

If you don't know what to do this Sunday, you should visit the NanoArt gallery and vote for your preferred nanoartwork. But what is NanoArt? This 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." According to the website founder, Cris Orfescu, "NanoArt could be for the 21st century what photography was for the 20th century." Even if there is a little bit of exaggeration in this statement, you can vote on 71 works submitted by 22 artists until March 31, 2007.

After a rigorous selection process, I chose -- and vote for -- three of these nanoartworks. In no special order, below is a work by Renata Spiazzi. (Credit and copyright Renata Spiazzi; link to a larger version)

Then I chose a work by Abigail Kurtz Migala. (Credit and copyright Abigail Kurtz Migala; link to a larger version)

Finally, I gave my third vote to a work by Fred Marinello. (Credit and copyright Fred Marinello; link to a larger version)

Of course, my personal choices are probably different from yours. It is obvious if you look at the current Top rated nanoartworks.

And if you're interested in nanotechnology, please sure to visit the NanoArt Gallery before the end of March 2007. One caveat: anyone of you can vote as many times as she/he wants...
