NanoArt is a new art discipline related to the micro or nanosculptures (molecular sculptures) created by artists or scientists through chemical or physical processes and visualized with powerful research tools like scanning electron or atomic force microscopes. The scientific images of these structures are captured and further processed using different artistic techniques to convert them into artworks showcased for large audiences.
NanoArt could be for the 21st Century what Photography was for the 20th Century. We live in a technological society, in a new Renaissance period, and there is no reason for Arts to stay away from Technology. NanoArt is the expression of the New Technological Revolution and reflects the transition from Science to Art using Technology. Scientists are exploring the nano world hoping to find a better future and Nanotechnology might be the answer. Like any new technology, Nanotechnology can have positive or negative effects on the environment and society. Artists should familiarize the general public with the nano universe, so people can focus on the positive effects and redirect the negative ones to benefit from them.
