Solarplate and Monotype Printmaking Workshop
Science has rapidly progressed into sub-atomic space. It is now possible for magnifying tools to discover images made of sub-atomic particles. NANOART is microscopic imagery. Nano-Solarplate Etchings and/or Nano-Monoprints are works of art depicting natural structures of matter discovered at molecular and atomic scales. These structures are visualized through digital photography and computers, with magnifying tools, telescopes, scanning electron microscopes, and atomic scales. The microscopic images are captured, analyzed, creatively refined, and further processed, utilizing different artistic media and printmaking techniques to convert micro images into original works of art. The format of this creative course will have high appeal for artists, craftsmen, educators, humanities, scientists, and technology fields.
