Words can’t really get across the essence of the nanoscale and potential of nanotechnology, but images can do much better. That’s why Foresight encourages participation in the NanoArt competition:
NanoArt 2007 INTERNATIONAL ONLINE COMPETITION
Submission deadline December 31, 2007.
Open to All Artists and Scientists – Three Electron Microscope Scans are provided as Seed Images
The worldwide competition NanoArt 2007 is open to all artists 18 years and older. Online voting will open January 1, 2008 through March 31, 2008. Judging is via the Internet and decided by our site visitors. Winners will be notified and published online around April 15, 2008.
NanoArt is a new art form where micro or nanosculptures created by artists or scientists through chemical or/and physical processes are visualized with powerful research tools like Scanning Electron Microscopes. The monochromatic electron microscope scans are processed further using different artistic techniques to create pieces of art that can be showcased for the general public. To read more about NanoArt and Nanotechnology please visit www.nanoart21.org
Nanoart21.org founded by artists/scientist Cris Orfescu (www.absolutearts.com/nanoart) will provide 3 high resolution monochromatic electron scans as seed images for artists to choose from. The participating artists will have to alter these images in any artistic way to finish the artistic-scientific process and create a NanoArt work. The artists or/and scientists are encouraged to participate with their own images as long as these visualize micro or nanostructures.

If you’re not artistic, you can participate by voting on the entries. Good luck to Nanodot readers who enter their work! —Christine
