Sensing Nanotechnologies through the Arts: Seeing and Making on the Surface of Things


The author assesses the role played by the surface in selected nanoscience and nanotechnology (N&N) practices by examining the interaction between surfaces and their viewers. In N&N, issues of scale and perception challenge those involved in science-art projects, forcing them to engage with nano-objects and surfaces by using either highly specialized instruments or metaphors. The most interesting examples of nano-based artworks give the audience the opportunity to interact with N&N through haptic sensing.
