The 1st International Festival of NANOART - Finland 2007

The 1st International Festival of NanoArt will be hosted by the Kotkan Valokuvakeskus Gallery in Kotka, Finland between May 4 and May 31, 2007. The show is curated by Cris Orfescu (USA) and Timo Mahonen (Finland).

This event will exhibit NanoArt works authored by 15 artists from 4 countries: Chris Marshall (Australia), Carol Cooper (Canada), Bjoern Daempfling (Germany), A. John Valois, Abigail Kurtz Migala, Chris Robinson, Darcy Lewis, Dolores Glover Kaufman, Fred Marinello, Gregory O'Toole, Jan Kirstein, K. Elise Cohen, Lisa Black, Ursula Freer, Cris Orfescu (USA).

To view the artists' NanoArt albums please visit the NanoArt 21 exhibition site

NanoArt is a new art discipline related to micro/nanosculptures created by artists/scientists through chemical/physical processes and visualized with powerful research tools like Scanning Electron Microscope or Atomic Force Microscope. The monochromatic microscope images are processed further to create pieces of art that can be showcased for large audiences to educate the public with creative images that are appealing and acceptable.

The strategy for renewal of science in post-Industrial era is an endeavour for the future of Knowledge economy.

Dear Colleagues I would send to you a preliminary invitation to collaborate and to participate at the initiative following initiative titled :


- Principal themes of the opened dialog between SCIENCE AND ART:

a) Scientific imaginary and aesthetics of contemporary art in growing up knowledge economy.
b) Development of nano-science and new forms of artistic fruition in contemporary era.

- EGOCREANET c/o Laboratory of Research in Education (LRE) of the Chemical Dept. of the University of Florence – will organise the above dialog between contemporary art and science focused on Nanotecnology, with an final event in presence realised during the Italian Week of Science. The venue will be in Florence at the Scientific Pole of the University of Florence, c/o Aula Magna in via della Idee 50019- FIRENZE. (Italy)
see the blog: Entanglement between science and art .

I hope I could receive a broad cooperation in achieving a shared program for improving an
trans-disciplinary dialogue between science and art by paying special attention to the development of "nano-technology" and "nano-art "
In summary, we know that with the nano- technologies science understanding pick up new interest in the epistemology of forms form to being capable of giving innovative nano- products.
On the other hand, contemporary computer-art, allows to propose new graphic representation and visual aids , in terms of original making structures as a pre-vision in a not observable dimension.

Therefore, the entanglement between science and art ,
working in a trans-disciplinary profile of innovative development in nanotechnology manufacturing, will furnish new areas of complementary research and a innovative professionalism in science and art, that can be able to recover the ancient creative tradition Florentine Renaissance,
historically mediated by an unitary co-operation between Art Science and Technology.

I hope that these reasons and motivation can be shared by you , and therefore I expect your kind proposals and adhesions to the open dialogue for improving a good co-operation on the issue :


A huge cordial greeting for your attention and co-operation. Paolo Manzelli FEB/01/2008 Firenze

N.B. To communicate the preliminary adhesion to the above initiative please send a mail to:
