NanoArt is a new discipline which combines art with science to create sculptures at molecular and atomic levels. Artists and scientists use chemical or physical processes to create these works, and the resulting micro and nanostructures are visualized with powerful research tools like scanning electron and atomic force microscopes. These scientific images are then captured and further processed, using different artistic techniques, to convert them into artworks to be showcased for the general public.
The El Camino show artists have extracted selected still images from their multimedia pieces and framed them along side the multimedia display for comparison. The exhibit also demonstrates how carefully selected music and image movement further enhances great still images that depict subjects as large as fireworks bursts and as small as nanosculptures that are approximately 80,000 times thinner than a human hair.
