NanoArt 2008 WinnersTop 10 artists in the 2008 NanoArt Online International Competition 10 40
Jan Schmoranzer 2008

Jan Schmoranzer is currently a group leader and head of BioImaging facility at the Molecular Cancer Research Center of Charite Berlin. He earned his Master degree in physicist from Germany, pursued his Ph.D. in cellular biophysics at Rockefeller University, New York and his postdoctoral research in cell biology at Columbia University, New York. There he has made significant impact by building a novel type of microscope to visualize in real-time how cells secrete molecules from the inside to the outside, and how cells ‘orient’ toward certain biochemical cues on a molecular basis, both processes that are essential for all cell types. Beside his research he has developed vivid interest in the visual arts: he had multiple exhibitions in photography and all of the micrographs displayed here received awards in international microscopy competitions. “Seeing the beauty of cellular structures, like microtubules, after many hours of tiring and repetitive lab-work often gives me the kick to go on. I am glad that scientist like me receive public attention for display of scientific imagery and I am excited to expand on projects like ‘Cell Portraits’ by exploring different cellular structures and cell types. I believe that visualizing science – the process of research as well as its end products – will gain importance in the future, not only to draw attention to a particular scientific subject, but also for science education itself.”

Elena Lucia Constantinescu 2008

I am a scientist in cellular biology domain. I have come to digital art after many years of working with the microscope in my lab. I was always fascinated by the spectacular microworld and, using the image processing software for my micrographs, I was astonished by the countless posibilites offered by digital technology to turn the photos into artistic images. And I started to draw…

Philip Brun Del Re 2008

I am a junior at Western Michigan University, currently working on completing my Bachelor of Arts in Fine Art. This summer I plan on studying abroad and acquiring knowledge of how different societies act and react with one another. I am interested in a multitude of scientific theories in relation to metaphysics, anthropology, and psychology. The image I have entered deals with some of these concepts and challenges the way and scale in which we view uncommon or unidentifiable images.

Renata Spiazzi 2008

Born in Italy, I have been involved in the arts all my life. Moved to the States in 1952, taught at the San Diego Community Colleges all the arts and crafts and when I retired I was introduced to the computer. When I discovered the potential of the digital tool I decided that I did not want to do an oil painting, a watercolor of even a wood cut. I wanted to take advantage of what the computer had to offer. Fascinated by filters, and then fractal programs, I started making compositions using the non objective images given to me by fractals fragments and a new world opened up for me. I am completely taken by fractals now, and I compare my compositions to music. It is not what it looks like, but what it makes you feel when you look at it!

David Derr 2008

Humanity is composed of creative explorers and symbol makers. We have been this way since the beginnings of our existence as a race and before. This is the cornerstone of what it is to be a thinking human being. My goal has always been to create works that contain the essences of good poetry. A balance of opposites, in a style that is recognizable, yet not necessarily realistic. I find the most effective way of doing this is by using a pseudo primitive style which on the surface seems simple, but in reality resonates deeper emotions. Derr’s works have won numerous awards and have been exhibited internationally. His works have been included in; Gallery and Studio Magazine, Photoshop User, and Digital Fine Arts Magazine. He was recently commissioned by the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra to created a painted violin for their annual Art String Initiative.

J'Sha 2008

I create extremely small art works. They are as small as 40 microns tall. More than 100 of these can fit on a pin head. They have details on the nanoscale. The works are made with a process I invented called nanoentonography. I originally developed the process for anticounterfeiting. After doing more complex pieces for industrial use, I decided to create artworks using the technique. The most complex works take months to create.

Teresa Majerus 2008

Teresa’s way to the artistic cognition was a complex process, guided by her passion of gaining knowledge and understanding the world. This has resulted from one hand in her PhD in Nature Science received from the Düsseldorf University, from the other hand in growing love for art. She mainly paints with acrylics, where quick decision making is needed, but also enjoy watercolors. Her art teachers were Manuel Aguilar (oil), Iva Mrazkova (watercolors) and Ivana Cekovic (history of art). Teresa’s artworks mostly start with discovering or rediscovering nature. If it is to use a brush or a painting knife, acrylic or watercolor, it is always the subject that defines styles and techniques of her work. Every time she paints, her goal is to stimulate the emotion of the viewer. The process of creating pictures is endlessly fascinating to her. Every person who enjoys her work is a reword to her efforts.

Bjoern Daempfling 2008

Dr. Björn Dämpfling grew up in Northern Germany, he lives and works since 1969 in Berlin/Germany. 1983/4 and 1987-91 he lived in the USA. Spending 2/3 of his time on science, one third on art and for the last ten years now, art is his published main profession, since then numerous Exhibitions worldwide, for example in London, New York and Beijing. Identifiable but unpredictable, even for him self, no “style” but the hunt for really new images all the time with every new image having to prove the core value of creativity for him: freedom of creation, newness, and being recognizable at the same time, based on complexity and quality of composition. The mainly digital production technique of his art removes borders between media, combines for example drawing on paper with digital drawing. Or he uses photography, in a pure manner as well as a basis for further digital alterations, for example in NanoArt.

Leonel Marques 2008

I am a PhD student in the School of Pharmacy, (Nottingham University, UK) developing nanoarrays to be addressed by super-resolutions techniques. The production of modified nanoparticles incorporating photoswitchable dyes and polymeric films are place together to create new nanosensors. I view most of my samples using Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) techniques, my second eyes to explore the nanoworld. My interest in designing and generating new nanodevices is my goal at the moment. Besides of my passion for Nanotechnology, Art has always played a huge role in my life; even before knowing what science was. As a kid I always remember to take some paper and pencils with me to draw wherever I can. I keep drawing times a time, black ink drawings, oil paintings, and I also participate with others collaborators in a local fanzine back home. When I discovered science I was quite divided in which path to follow in my future. I choose Science due to my high curiosity in understanding things, but always kept Art near by…

Aruna D 2008

I am 20 years old,a final year B.Tech biotechnology student of Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India. Art has been my passion since childhood. Whenever I see a diagram or microscopic structures in books or even a patch on the wall, I used to see a world beyond the strokes and lines and the colours. A world which only I could see which communicates a lot of things. Thanks to NanoArt for giving me an oppurtunity to express that fantasy world and turn it into artwork so that everyone else can enjoy what only I saw before. This fusion of art and science is great. As a nature lover, I would like to express my concern for the welfare of the earth as a whole. I make sure I have a theme in most of my artworks that people should not only enjoy but also think upon. I believe art is the most understandable and effective form of communicating things to people without par and it could me made use of efficiently through NanoArt like platforms.
