Orfescu NanoArt Gallery

I create Art from Science using Technology. My art is a reflection of the technological movement. I consider NanoArt to be a more appealing and effective way to communicate with the general public and to inform people about the new technologies of the 21st Century. NanoArt is intended to make the public aware of Nanotechnology and how will this impact our lives. Nanotechnology deals with the synthesis, manipulation and characterization of matter at the sub-100 nanometers level. Nanotechnology is still an emerging area although commercial products are already on the market. Nanotechnology is a very powerful combination of technologies that could be extremely beneficial or extremely dangerous, including life threatening. I think the best approach to control things is by gaining Knowledge. Not only governments and military should know about these developments, but the general public at large should be informed. My images being attractive to the public from the esthetic point of view awaken the curiosity of my audience. As a result, people ask questions and have open discussions around these new technologies, and this is good because people will take informed decisions.

I bring the small world in front of my audience through high resolution electron microscope scans of natural micro or nano-structures and nano-sculptures I create by physical or/and chemical processing. I paint digitally the monochromatic electron images and print them with archival inks on canvas or fine art paper. This way, the scientific images become artworks and could be showcased for a large audience to educate the public with creative images that are appealing and acceptable.

NanoArt is not Photography. The depth and three dimensions achieved in NanoArt sets this process of electron imaging apart from Photography, where images are created by photons (particles of light) rather than by electrons (electrically charged particles). The electrons penetrate deeper in the structure creating images with more depth, more natural 3D-look than the photographic images.
