"NANOdesign is a new discipline at the design-science-technology intersections. Fashionable textiles for Apparel and Home Decor and patterns for Electronic Accessories and Sporting Goods are designed by reproducing structures and patterns from nano world (molecular and atomic landscapes)" (Cris Orfescu). This is a logic result of the emergent multidisciplinary Nanotechnology (molecular manufacturing) which deals with the synthesis, manipulation, and characterization of matter at the sub-100 nanometers level (1 nanometer = 1 billionth of a meter which is about one hundred thousand times smaller than human hair thickness).
"I bring the small world in front of my audience by visualizing with a scanning electron microscope the nanolandscapes and nanosculptures I create by chemical and physical processing. I capture the monochromatic scans in a computer and digitally paint and manipulate these images combining the realism of the scientific imaging with abstract coloring" (Orfescu).VISIT ARTIST's SITE
