Art-Science-Technology Conference at the 4th International Festival of NanoArt
Robinson presented “The Moon Arts Project, Nanotechnology and Contemporary Art”. The Moon Arts Project as part of the Google Lunar X Prize tags along on an ambitious competition to send a privately funded rover to the moon. 46 artists from the NanoArt 21 group will have their artworks included in that rover. Michaloudis presented “Nanosky on the Moon”. Using silica aerogel nanomaterial he is creating clouds sculptures that could improve the public perception of scientific research and climate change. Some of his bottled aerogel nanosculptures were exhibited during the festival.
Chiolerio was talking about his collaboration with artist A. Scali to create two lithographs of a few hundred nanometers etched on two silicon chips. Constant presented “The fourth dimension in mathematics and art” focusing on the challenge involved in the visualization process of 4D objects.
