Cris Orfescu and Winners of the NanoArt International Online Competition to Exhibit at the EuroNanoForum 2009

Cris Orfescu ( and winners from all 3 editions of the NanoArt International Online Competition ( have been invited to exhibit at the EuroNanoForum 2009, June 2-5, in Prague, Czech Republic. Frances Geesin (UK), Bjoern Daempfling (Germany), Carol Cooper, Eva Lewarne (Canada), Chris Robinson, Darcy Lewis, David Derr, David Hylton, Renata Spiazzi, Fred Marinello, Philip Brun Del Re, Ursula Freer, Diane Vetere, Steven Pollard (USA), Teja Krasek (Slovenia), Teresa Majerus (Luxembourg), and Imameddin Amiraslan (Azerbaijan) will show their works at this event. 33 prints and 2 multimedia works will be exhibited at the Prague Congress Centre.

EuroNanoForum 2009 is the 4th conference of a set of international nanotechnology conferences organized within the framework of national Presidencies of the European Union. The conference will be hosted at the Prague Congress Centre, as an official event of the Czech Presidency, under the auspices of the Czech Ministry for Education Youth and Sports and with the support of the Industrial Technologies Program of the European Commission. Focusing on “Nanotechnology for sustainable economy”, EuroNanoForum 2009 will address the contribution and challenges of nanotechnology research for a sustainable development of European industry and society, such as the need for reduction in carbon emissions and fossil fuels dependence, the substantial increase in energy demand, pollution control, clean water management and sustainable quality of life of the European citizen, as well as material production sustainability and efficiency. In this respect, nanotechnology presents many opportunities and challenges that have to be analyzed at international level through a safe, responsible and integrated approach, as first presented by the ENF2003 conference.

NanoArt is the expression of the Nanotechnology Revolution and reflects the transition from Science to Art using Technology. This new art discipline 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 audiences to educate the public with creative images that are appealing and acceptable.

It is very nice to see such works. The natural growth is always beautiful, artificial can also be, but mimicking nature is very difficult.

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
