« The 2nd International Festival of NanoArt organized by NanoArt21
( will be hosted in Stuttgart, Germany by NAHVISION
Institute for International Culture Exchange, between November 1st and
November 30th, 2008. The show is curated by artist/scientist Cris
Orfescu (USA) and art professor Dorothea Fleiss (Germany).

18 artists from 8 countries were selected to participate with their
works at this invitational event: Geert Lensens (Belgium), Hugh
McGrory (Ireland), Teresa Majerus (Luxembourg), Bjoern Daempfling,
Dorothea Fleiss (Germany), Han Halewijn (Netherlands), Elena Lucia
Constantinescu (Romania), Teja Krasek (Slovenia), Chris Robinson, Cris
Orfescu, David Derr, David Hylton, Derek Toomre, Jan Kirstein, Judith
Lightfeather, Lisa Black, Siddhartha Pathak, Steven Pollard (USA).

NanoArt is a new art discipline at the art-science-technology
intersections. It features nanolandscapes (molecular and atomic
landscapes which are natural structures of matter at molecular and
atomic scales) and nanosculptures (structures created by scientists
and artists by manipulating matter at molecular and atomic scales
using chemical and physical processes). These structures are
visualized with powerful research tools like scanning electron
microscopes and atomic force microscopes and their scientific images
are captured and further processed by using different artistic
techniques to convert them into artworks showcased for large

NanoArt is the expression of the New Technological Revolution
reflecting the transition from Science to Art using Technology and
could be for the 21st Century what Photography was for the 20th
Century. Over the past two decades the ability to measure and
manipulate matter at atomic and molecular scales has led to the
discovery of novel materials and phenomena. These advances underlie
the multidisciplinary areas known today as Nanotechnology. The
responsible development and application of Nanotechnology could lead
to create jobs and economic growth, to enhance national security, and
to improve the quality of life. Some of the benefits would be cleaner
manufacturing processes, stronger and lighter building materials,
smaller and faster computers, and more powerful ways to detect and
treat disease. NanoArt is aimed to raise the public awareness of
Nanotechnology and its impact on our lives.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
