Bill Smith, USA, 2012

I study and observe nature's workings. I use scientific information and my intuition to build works of art that conform to a natural order by creating with efficiency in mind beauty results.
I believe everything is mechanical and everything can be understood in mechanical terms. Exploring the woods, lakes, and streams as a kid provided me a sense of wonder that fueled an interest in NATURE, science and mechanics. I am in awe of Nature's functional complexity and aesthetic beauty. Through what I do, I hope to communicate my interest and appreciation of the natural world to the public.
We often look to the macro world to inspire our nanotechnology. Conversely I think we should also look to the nature’s nano world for ways to develop engineering solutions for the macro world. Nature is the supreme engineer.

Bjoern Daempfling, Germany, 2012

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."

Bjorn Hoffmann, Germany, 2012

Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light
In the last years it is becoming more and more important to show artistic images in high-impact publications. Especially the cover images of such journals are often made of a combination of high artistic content and less scientific content. In my opinion it should be more important to combine a high amount of scientific significance with a beautiful artistic background to reach both pure scientists and friends of art.

Daniela Caceta, Brazil, 2012

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."

Elena Lucia Constantinescu, Romania, 2012

"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."

Galina Strukova, Russia, 2012

Senior researcher at the Institute of Solid State Physics of Russian Academy of Sciences. Awarded “USSR inventor” for the research of semiconductors. "Scientists have been trying to understand the laws of biological growth and morphogenesis for a very long time as well as material specialists and engineers have been trying to reproduce models of wonderful biological objects in order to replicate their functional abilities. The lotus phenomenon is a widely known fact. Its self-purification has been studied well and is used in engineering. Among the unsolved tasks of biomimethics is the replication of nacre, which unique structure makes it phenomenally stable against external load. We found a common biomimethical method to synthesize metallic micro-replicas of biological objects, such as protozoa (plasmodia), plants, mushrooms, shells. In this work, we present more than 50 pictures obtained with SEM. These pictures show metallic models of the nature objects in their elegant beauty, like true pieces of art. A striking resemblance between biological objects and their metallic replicas implies the common laws of morphogenesis. The ability to influence the shape of the models is demonstrated: for instance, well tuned conditions of synthesis lead to the certain type of convex-concave shell-like structures. It is also shown that the found method allows to reproduce both the shape of a shell as well as its intrinsic hierarchical multilayered structure. Therefore, the art may assist the science to reveal the laws of morphogenesis of natural objects via the intuitive observation of beauty and harmony."

Han Halewijn, The Netherlands, 2012

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."

Ioannis Michaloudis, Australia, 2012

Visual artist Dr. Ioannis Michaloudis was born in 1965, Anavra-Karditsas and raised in Athens, Greece. Graduated in 1989 from the Faculty of Fine Arts and Design (TEI Athens) he continued his studies in Paris, where he received a degree in Product Design from the Ecole Normale Superieure des Arts Décoratifs. In 1992 he raised his Master's degree in Visual Arts from Sorbonne University. In the same university he completed his Doctorate in 1998 where Dr. Michaloudis develops its position on the “elastic arts” by analyzing the relationship between visual and applied arts through the presentation of his works of land art and in situ projects. From 2001 to 2003 he carried out a postdoctoral research in Massachusetts Institute of Technology on the (Nephele)3, the Cubed Cloud project. In MIT, Michaloudis met silica aerogel, a nanomaterial used by NASA to collect stardust. For the reason that this ethereal material looks like our threatened sky, Michaloudis transferred it -worldwide first- in art and design. Because of his multidisciplinary profile, Ioannis Michaloudis had received fellowships from the Greek governement, the Onassis, Leventis, Kostopoulos Foundations and the University of Sorbonne. Has been awarded by the Dean of Arts, MIT, the MIT Arts Council, the Dean MIT School of Architecture. In 2001 was awarded “Fulbright Price for Greek Artists”. In 2007 he won the Golden Lighthouse in the XXIV Biennial of Alexandria Egypt. Artworks of Michaloudis are in private and public collections such as the A.S Onassis Foundation. He realized land art projects in Greece and France such as In the Circulation of Red Trees, in City University of Paris. Michaloudis had realised in situ projects in hospitals such as the Hea(r)tree and M(ed)use in Onassis Cardiac Surgery Center, Athens. This November he had participated @ The Art&Science International Exhibition and Symposium in China Science and Technology Museum in Beijing. He is married to the cellist Mariliza Papadouri and has two daughters, Teresa and Romylia.

Linda Alterwitz, USA, 2012

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.

Michael Poulton, Canada, 2012

Canadian artist, Michael Poulton, is a multi-media artist and founder and director of the Museum of Temporary Art, a conceptual gallery and installation space. The artist works in the mediums of painting, site specific installations, printmaking, collage and found art assemblages. Often utilizing antique manuscripts, maps and prints, and found art objects, Poulton’s work is enigmatic and rich in allusion, its meaning elusive, raising questions about the very nature of art and the institutions that preserve and promote it. Born in Canada and educated in England at the Camberwell School of Art, London and the Epsom and Ewell School of Art, his work has received awards from the Canada Council for the Arts, Ontario Arts Council, Association of Ontario Art Galleries, as well as the American Niche Award, and the British, Carlsberg Prize. The artist's work has been reproduced in The Sciences, the Journal of the New York Academy of Science, as well as other books, magazines and journals.

M. Suchea and I. V. Tudose, Romania, 2012

M. Suchea and I.V. Tudose are Romanian scientists working together in materials science field in Greece. One is Physicist the other is Chemist… Together they focus their knowledge in engineering and designing functionalized materials for various applications. They share also the passion for arts. Visualizing the Nano-world and making it accessible to others via art seemed a very good way for expressing themselves and bringing their scientific collaboration to a deeper level. The Chemist “builds” and “freeze” the “world”, the Physicist reveals it and its laws. Microscopy images are a glimpse they allow anyone to have into their kingdom. Digital coloring becomes their fingerprints onto the window they bring in front of everyone who like to see what lies bellow the eyesight resolution.

Pilar Ruiz-Azuara, Mexico, 2012

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.

Steven Pollard, USA, 2012

Dr. Pollard is a psychologist practicing in Hilo since 1993. His art career started in 1964/65 when he studied art history in Paris France. After completing his BA in Psychology, he was admitted to the Master of Fine Arts program at the University of Alabama in Studio Art and attended for several months. Due to the conflict in Vietnam at the time, he was about to be drafted and dropped out of school and joined the USAF. He later completed his M.A. and Ph.D. in Psychology and has been practicing as a clinical psychologist since 1974 and painting from time to time. His work has always been abstract and in various mediums, including oils, acrylics, water colors, and more recently, digitized computer painting using Photoshop CS2 and Painter 9, painting on a Cintiq computer screen. He uses the rich depth of conflicting and convergent thoughts and emotions of therapy sessions to create abstract oil, acrylic, and water color paintings with deep vibrant colors and surprising shapes and a sense of wonder and fluid motion.
”Tremendous gratitude and thanks to Cris Orfescu for the starter images and doing this whole process as art and science coming together.”
