Björn Dämpfling, Germany, 2011

Dr. Björn Dämpfling grew up in Northern Germany, he lives and works since 1969 in Berlin/Germany. In 1983/4 and 1987-91 he lived in the USA. He was spending 2/3 of his time on science, and 1/3 on art. For the last 10 years, art is his main profession. He exhibits worldwide, like London, New York, and Beijing. Identifiable but unpredictable, even for himself, every new image has 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. "In creating NanoArt I am always quite happy being provided with images to work with, because finding myself the best fitting image for my purpose or just taking material as an inspiration for something in need of a commentary to find its nano roots, wouldn't do it for me. It is like a non-physical material to be used like a physical one, like wood for a wood-cut, which develops into a piece of art, not by hiding its given structures, but by enhancing, twisting, coloring and using dozens of plates. That's what I do, most of the 'ab-using' filters, layering dozens of times and painting digitally into the images. The titles for my NanoArt works are taken from the works of H.P. Lovecraft."

Carol Flaitz, USA, 2011

"I am a professional artist and my husband, Phil Flaitz, is an electron microscopist working for IBM, East Fishkill, NY. One evening he showed me some of his images. I was awed by what I saw and began to paint them using a combination of mixed media. Since I was originally a ceramic artist I use a great deal of texture to express and interpret his micrographs. Some of the materials that I use to achieve these effects include: ground glass, pumice mediums, dyed glue, polymer resin, oxidized metallic paints, and various acrylic mediums. The title comes from my husband’s screen name. The work is a reflection of my own marriage where art and technology unite. I have been thrilled to find out about the Nanoart movement and I am very interested in participating in anyway possible. I would love to see more exhibitions of this type of work and would be willing to participate to help this come about."

Daniela Caceta, Brazil, 2011

Daniela Caceta was born in 1977. Since 1992 she has been working at the Centro Multidisciplinar para o Desenvolvimento de Materiais Cerâmicos (CMDMC) / Universidade Estadual Paulista (UNESP) and Universidade Federal de São Carlos (UFSCar) (Brazil) on computer generated artwork. Working also with a Field Emission Gun Scanning Electron Microscope (FEG) she revealed some interesting features. She used Microscopy FEG to monitor the formation, growth, development, and mostly, the morphology of several nanostructures.
"Nanometric materials are invisible to the human eye. By comparison, particles at the nanometric scale are many times smaller than the thickness of a hair and smaller than a bacterium. Since the time of ancient Greece, through their imagination, humans have engineered materials at the nanometer level. Although the Greeks where unaware of the size of the particles with which they were dealing, they created colorful pottery glazes by manipulating nano-sized particles."

"I find nanotechnology fascinating as it is on the verge of completely reshaping our world with the strides being made in science and medicine. It also offers artists new insights on an aspect of nature that would otherwise be left unseen. Indispensable are the tools (electron microscope) which allow us to see the smallest facets of our world and thus provide the artist the ability to envision and create new worlds."

Elena Lucia Constantinescu, Romania, 2011

"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 possibilities offered by digital technology to turn the photos into artistic images. And I started to draw… The microscopic images are fascinating and very challenging both for a scientist and an artist. I think every microscopist who has some artistic talent should try to speculate the beauty of the micrographs or donate some nice images which are not scientifically useful but could be spectacular by casual errors."

David Derr, USA, 2011

"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.

Han Halewijn, The Netherlands, 2011

Born in Leeuwarden, The Netherlands. He started at eight years with playing the recorder and later the oboe. Since 1992 he works as an independent artist-composer-teacher and initiated Music Design for art research and production of new media. His work consists of interactive performances (Mobile Gaming and RFID - Leaving Traces, Concerto Grosso - Expo 2000, Tapestry Biennial - Unwrapped), social communication experiences (WEB real world exchanges - Interchange Me), development of proprietary hard and software, Digital artworks and NanoArt. He won prices with “Interactive Woods” and “Disturbing Utopia” (Paper Art 7 Biennial). "As an Artist I'm always looking into the interaction between People, Technology and our Nature. I feel obliged to integrate them and accumulate surprise, thoughts and creative thinking in the reflection of the observer who can also be the actuator during the exposure of the work. The task of the artist has always been to comment or reflect on the social technological progress of his time. I like to give the audience a direction in sound, images or actions to the inner self and thus create the feeling of letting me interchange you. Because new development plays an important role in the development of my projects, I try to work together with as many different companies as needed, to challenge their knowledge meanwhile creating the needed hard and software. So it becomes a reality for me and makes the unseen seeable in a touchable level for each and everyone."

J'Sha, USA, 2011

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.

Karen Brown, USA, 2011

Karen Hochman Brown received a BA in Art from Pitzer College. She did post-graduate work in Arts Education at California College of Arts and Crafts. Before finding a career as a graphic designer, she taught sewing, doll making workshops and geometry. She ran a children's book and gift store, even creating some of the merchandise: fanciful hats, capes, fairy wands and other dress-up garb. Ms. Brown has given up her graphic design career but continues to do pro bono work for her synagogue and other Jewish organizations. "Working in the field of Judaica has been a great source of personal joy, a way to integrate my background in fine art and graphic design, with my religious devotion. While I maintain control of many aspects of the design, the computer programs I use allow for randomness and discovery. In a session of work, I will create many varied pieces—jewel-like stars, wispy backgrounds, bold patterns. I select and gather these found pieces and weave them together, adding text to make the finished design. My recent work still maintains the structure of a six-pointed star but transcends the field of Judaica. I create the mandalas with a mindful eye to creating order in our already chaotic lives."

Linda Alterwitz, USA, 2011

Linda Alterwitz is a Las Vegas based multi-media artist. Having earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Colorado at Boulder and a Master of Fine Arts from the University of Denver, Alterwitz spent 25 years working primarily in oils and acrylics, painting and drawing on large canvases to create nonrepresentational paintings. Alterwitz began exploring photography in 2006. With a vision that is painterly in nature, she digitally manipulates and layers together images to create large-scale, photographs. Alterwitz’s philosophy addresses the constant challenge to keep a balance between the two sides of the brain: the logical and the creative. This duality is apparent throughout the body of her work, starting with her photographic equipment. Alterwitz uses both digital cameras and toy cameras. The high-tech digital cameras produce clear, factual images that are believable and acceptable in our right-brained world. In contrast, images shot on film by the low-tech, simple workings of plastic cameras capture a spontaneous, altered world. Alterwitz’s inspiration, the inner workings of the human body and her external surrounding environment, plays with the dance of the two sides of the brain as well as the contradiction of fear and reassurance. Past personal struggles with medical issues were tempered by fond, childhood memories of playing in the sand dunes and forests of Gary, Indiana where Alterwitz grew up. It is this dichotomy that gives her work a comforting sense of familiarity while simultaneously creating tension.

Lisa Black, USA, 2011

Lisa Black received a degree from the University of Michigan in Art History and French and received a Diploma from the Sorbonne in French Civilization. It was while she was in France that she saw her first Picasso Exhibition. From that time on she wanted to be a painter herself. Fortunately she has been able to do that for many years experimenting in many media, exploring digital images, printmaking, watercolors, acrylics and more....winning many awards along the way. Her purpose is to create art that is colorful, strong, expressionistic and individualistic. She was delighted to receive an invitation from Cris Orfescu to join the world of NanoArt. She took part in the NanoArt international festivals in Kotka, Finland and Stuttgart, Germany, and in the NanoArt21 show in San Sebastian, Spain.
"This is the fifth time I have entered the NanoArt Competition. I’m happy it continues to flourish. It is a challenge to keep creating new images. I find working with the computer and Cris Orfescu’s seed images very enjoyable. My work is posted on Facebook so people will become acquainted with NanoArt and will perhaps follow the Competition. It is exciting."

Maria Matheus, Brazil, 2011

"I am an architect, artist, and PhD in Communication Sciences, and I devoted a large part of my life to teaching and research. Now the art is my priority. Discovering the NanoArt was for me a pleasant surprise. And a great challenge as an artist. To strengthen and promote this form of art, I suggest that the exhibitions should also happen in academic centers, as well as in scientific conferences. Create a social network, made possible a greater interaction between artists, scientists and the general public."

Phillip Bascom, USA, 2011

Though a lot of detail was lost making these images, I believe that with more development, this same technique could be used to make full three-dimensional renders of nanoscale architecture. It wouldn’t be difficult to create a model of a nanostructure which could be viewed from any angle, or to turn scans taken at different stages of the self-assembly process into a movie showing the emergence of order at the smallest scales. I believe that there is a lot of potential in modern computer modeling technology to make the nanoscale world really visible and understandable.
On a more personal note, I’m very excited to be alive at a time when we’re starting to make the underlying beauty of nature that draws scientists to science available and accessible to the public. NanoArt is part of a movement that is just getting started, and it’s a movement that I think will completely change the way we see the world before it’s done.

Pilar Ruiz-Azuara, Mexico, 2011

Pilar was born in the Dominican Republic (1943). She is resident of Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico. She has a Doctorate in Sciences (Physics) from UNAM (1979) and also studied Art at the UABC Art School and House of Culture in Ensenada (2001-2008). Oil painting and Digital Art are her favorite media of expression. The relationships between human beings and their environment –physical, economical, social and/or political –and fractals are her most exciting themes. Her works have been exhibited in Mexico, France, Germany, Denmark, U.S.A, Italy and Spain. Online in NanoArt 2007, NanoArt 2008, NanoArt 2009-2010. She considers a challenge to develop NanoArt works. This is a new area, very broad. In the future, she thinks that some divisions have to be created. It is difficult to compare the different types of artworks that one can produce with the nanoimages. In 2011, the objective was to generate images with no restrictions. Form, color and texture from the 3 original seed nanoimages were explored. In some cases, additional fractal and 3D effects were included.

Renata Spiazzi, USA, 2011

"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!
NanoArt competition is a very stimulating procedure and learning experience that can be applied to any work.”

Teresa Majerus-Bednarz, Luxembourg, 2011

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.
