Nano^Art Kickoff

last modified Aug 10, 2015 11:29 AM
Nano^Art is an experimental event joining established local artists and emerging scientists from the NanoDTC to explore the nano domain of the very small, followed by a themed discussion that will take place during the Ideas Festival on 31st Oct.

On Wednesday 15th July, six local established artists were paired with students and researchers from the NanoDTC community as part of the Nano^Art kick-off event. The teams will explore the nano domain of the very small through questions on how we perceive and interpret processes that are very far from everyday human experience and physical realities. A series of two-way interactions between these practitioners mediated over the summer will be showcased and interrogated at a themed discussion that will take place during the Ideas Festival on 31st Oct.

The artists involved are:

We are all excited to find out what common and contrasting experiences emerge from this collaboration between artists and scientists.

 Artists and scientists tend to approach problems with a similar open-mindedness and inquisitiveness; they both do not fear the unknown…With such complementary thinking, there is great potential when they collaborate from the offset, resulting in unexpected outcomes that can be exponentially more valuable than when they work apart.”
