Tag: Nano art

Frederik de Wilde is a Nano artist based in Brussels and the creator of a new color called “blacker than black.” Nano art is defined as an art form merging practices of science, technology, and art, where the artist manipulates molecular matter to form a “sculpture”. Their art cannot be seen by the naked eye. Existing at an atomic scale, their art can only be seen through an atomic-force microscope, which is then captured using photons, and processed for public viewing as prints and 3D models. De Wilde likens it to the designs in a snowflake, also only visible under an electro-magnetic microscope. Understanding De Wilde’s process makes his images, such as his series of skulls gushing with wave-like particles, especially surreal.
