Deadline approaching for NanoArt 2007 nanotechnology art competition
(Nanowerk News) Open to All Artists and Scientists - Three Electron Microscope Scans are provided as Seed Images - Submission deadline December 31, 2007.
The worldwide competition NanoArt 2007 is open to everyone. Online voting will open January 1, 2008 through March 31, 2008. Judging is via the Internet and decided by our site visitors. Winners will be notified and published online around April 15, 2008.
Three Seed Images of approximate 3000 x 2300 pixels at a resolution of 72 dpi are provided by the competition sponsor, nanoart21.org.
NanoArt is a new art form where micro or nanosculptures created by artists or scientists through chemical or/and physical processes are visualized with powerful research tools like Scanning Electron Microscopes. The monochromatic electron microscope scans are processed further using different artistic techniques to create pieces of art that can be showcased for the general public. To read more about NanoArt and Nanotechnology please visit www.nanoart21.org
Nanoart21.org founded by artists/scientist Cris Orfescu (www.absolutearts.com/nanoart) will provide 3 high resolution monochromatic electron scans as seed images for artists to choose from. The participating artists will have to alter these images in any artistic way to finish the artistic-scientific process and create a NanoArt work. The artists or/and scientists are encouraged to participate with their own images as long as these visualize micro or nanostructures.
