"Nanodesign is a new discipline at the design-science-technology intersections. Everyday things and fashion 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)READ MORE
NANOdesign Studio was founded by Cris Orfescu to replicate patterns and structures from microscopic world in fashion design and daily life products. Orfescu creates and promotes NanoArt, a new art discipline involving a 4-step scientific-artistic process: creation of molecular and atomic sculptures through chemical reactions and physical processes (nanosculptures) or discovery of natural molecular and atomic structures with artistic potential (nanolandscapes); visualization of these nanostructures with powerful research tools like scanning electron microscopes; capture of the scientific image; further processing of the scientific image using different artistic techniques to convert them into artworks showcased for large audiences.READ MORE
