EXHIBITION AND COMPETITION AT NANOISRAEL 2016 CONFERENCE
Following the success of NanoIsrael 2014, we are proud to host again an exhibition of works of art based on nanotechnology. The best Art work piece will be awarded, as judged by a jury of experts in the arts and sciences.
Prof. Ron A. Nabarro acts as the Chair of the Selection Committee.
Nano art features nanolandscapes (molecular and atomic landscapes which are natural structures of matter at molecular and atomic scales) and nanosculptures (structures created by manipulating matter at molecular and atomic scales using chemical and physical processes). These structures are visualized with research tools like scanning electron microscopes and atomic force microscopes and their scientific images are captured and may be further processed by using different artistic techniques to convert them into artworks showcased for large audiences.
NanoIsrael 2016 participants wishing to submit, need to comply with the following:
2 files need to be emailed: One file with the art image in a high resolution good enough for print (MacIntosh files are not accommodated) and the second, a word.doc format, with text in answer to the following:
