Alessandro Scali & Robin Goode's NANOART on NATURE

Yes, it's true. On the last NATURE issue published today there's an article about our nanoart project, written by Emiliano Feresin. Here's the editor abstract, directly from nature website:

It's a small world


Curated by Stefano Raimondi as part of the BergamoScienza festival in Bergamo, Nanoart may be the smallest show on Earth. Billed as Italy's first nanoscale art exhibition, "per vedere l'invisibile", it features six works by 'nano' artists Alessandro Scali and Robin Goode. Their collaboration with physicist Fabrizio Pirri, from the Turin Polytechnic University atomic force microscopy lab, produced works including Actual Size, a far from actual size map of Africa.

NANOART - BEYOND HERCULES COLUMNS







BEYOND HERCULES COLUMNS
Alessandro Scali e Robin Goode, 2006
in collaboration with Politecnico di Torino, Physics Dept.
201um x 84um (um being micrometres).
Mounted on a silicon plate 20x20mm.
4 x b/w coal prints. 60x80cm (SEM - Scanning Electron Microscope - images).

A series of human imprints lithographed onto a piece of silicon. It represents a journey of a man into an unknown world. A journey that breaches new frontiers and borders. Its a desire to be suprised by the unknown, to witness an undisclosed beauty. The voyage beyond Hercules Columns parts from our reality to an infinitely small one. An invisible reality, yet one that exists.

NANOART



NANOART
An artistic project by Alessandro Scali & Robin Goode
With the collaboration of Politecnico di Torino, Phisics Department

Nanoart is a new frontier, a new boundary, a new media by which we can create and communicate. Nanoart starts from the relationship between art and nanotechnology. We have searched to create an aesthetic paradox: a piece of art that you can never see. Yet that exists and carries a message.

Alessandro Scali e Robin Goode, 2004

With the desire to create art that has a social bearing and value, the project is a study on the insignificance of the human form in contemporary society. The works were created over two years and analyse, through synthetic and surreal imagery, this devalued state. The project contains 5 subjects: ‘Table’, ‘Scale’, ‘Light’, ‘Claw machine’ and ‘Ashtray’.

Created for the ‘Energias renovadas’ exhibition in Madrid. February 2004. All artists were asked a question: ‘What energy drives you to create?’. Our response was ‘Hunger’. Hunger to taste and understand who we really are and what were made of. The exhibition was held at the Culturale Conde Duque di Madrid.
