NanoArt 2011 call to artists
(Nanowerk News) The worldwide competition NanoArt 2011 is open to all artists 18 years and older. The online exhibition will open for public in April, 2011. Winners will be notified and published online on May 31, 2011.
From a previous competition: Orderly Chaos. Prepared a fractal image in Ultra Fractal. When ready, overlapped the original nano-iamge with it and used modes to reinforce colors.
Jurors: Dr. Anatoli Korkin (PhD in Physics from Moscow Lomonosov State University) is Associate Research Professor at Arizona State University and President of Nano & Giga Solutions, a company that provides research and software development in the area of computational chemistry and materials design for nanotechnology applications and consulting and project management in nanotechnology education, science, and innovation; Hugh McGrory is an Irish filmmaker/photographer and a NanoArt pioneer who has built a strong reputation for innovation through experimentation. He was filmmaker in residence at the Toomre Lab's CINEMA microscopy department, Yale University School of Medicine for summer 2007, researching, collecting and creating moving images of the living cell and exploring the wider area of scientific imaging. He is now the Creative Director of Culture Shock Marketing in New York City.
For the 5th anniversary edition of this competition, nanoart21.org will provide 3 high resolution monochromatic electron scans of nanosculptures created by Cris Orfescu (www.crisorfescu.comand www.absolutearts.com/nanoart).The participating artists will have to alter the provided image(s) in any artistic way to finish the artistic-scientific process and create NanoArt work(s).The artists and scientists are strongly encouraged to participate with their own images as long as these visualize micro or nanostructures.
