The content for this book has been based on a self-emergent processes. It explores an art historical understanding of matter and uses various hypotheses to elucidate the effects on materiality and agency as a result of the emergence of nanotechnology. The blurring of material boundaries are reflected in the establishment of fluid organic spatial narratives in which to place ideas, propositions and concerns. The focus of Nanoart in this publication will be contextualised in relation to specific scientific instrumentation and discoveries. This publication reflects on the practice of selected artists currently working in the area of nanotechnology, and positions their works as touchstones for exploring our understanding of materiality from an atomistic viewpoint.
The booklaunch will take place in the New Law School Building Foyer at 12.30pm on Thursday, 13th June.
