The hand that caught me falling

From the 7th October 2016, the new work 'Hand That Caught Me Falling' by scientific sculptor Jonty Hurwitz is on show at Walton Fine Arts Gallery. The work is part of Hurwitz's catroptic ananmorphosis series and explores how he was "saved" during a dark period of his life.

From droplets on a spider web to a spiral galaxy: Stunning photos reveal the natural beauty in science

A set of stunning photographs that reveal the natural beauty in science are set to go on show to the public.

The 100 incredible images are the shortlisted entries for the Royal Photographic Society's International Images for Science competition and highlight how important photography is for academics.

The show includes a photo of one of the smallest 3D sculptures ever made, a surfing girl that measures just 150 micrometres tall, taken by Stefan Diller.  The sculpture was made by nano-artist Jonty Hurwitz using a 3D printing technique called multiphoton lithography which tightens polymer resin with infrared light one 3D pixel at a time.

Art on the Nanoscale and Beyond

In collaboration with Ali K. Yetisen, the Tosteson postdoctoral fellow at Harvard Medical School

Abstract

Methods of forming and patterning materials at the nano- and microscales are finding increased use as a medium of artistic expression, and as a vehicle for communicating scientific advances to a broader audience. While sharing many attributes of other art forms, miniaturized art enables the direct engagement of sensory aspects such as sight and touch for materials and structures that are otherwise invisible to the eye. The historical uses of nano-/microscale materials and imaging techniques in arts and sciences are presented. The motivations to create artwork at small scales are discussed, and representations in scientific literature and exhibitions are explored. Examples are presented using semiconductors, microfluidics, and nanomaterials as the artistic media; these utilized techniques including micromachining, focused ion beam milling, two-photon polymerization, and bottom-up nanostructure growth. Finally, the technological factors that limit the implementation of artwork at miniature scales are identified, and potential future directions are discussed. As research marches toward even smaller length scales, innovative and engaging visualizations and artistic endeavors will have growing implications on education, communication, policy making, media activism, and public perception of science and technology.

‘CNN Ones to Watch’ captures Hurwitz’s figure of a woman who can only be viewed through a microscope, as she dances delicately on a single strand of human hair. His   quest to merge art and science is limitless – he makes vast bronze sculptures using algorithms and mirrors which play with perspectives.

The programme follows Hurwitz in the laboratory at one of the world’s leading universities in engineering and natural sciences, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany, as the alchemist turned artist crafts a new work.

Nano sculptures go viral on the internet

It has been an insane few days since the launch of the nano sculptures.  They have spread far and wide on the internet like wildfire.  In the 3 days since launch, the have appeared on news sites and blogs in every corner of the world. Traffic has gone through the roof.  On the basis of a 0.5% click-through rate to my site across all articles, blogs, social media etc. 

An estimated 25-30 million people have viewed the work online in the last 3 days

What a wonderful online exhibition.  I love the internet :-)

Poet Ant the Rant

writes about the Lost Hurwitz Nano Sculptures

This poem was written
On a pinhead
In nanometre
In fonts a miniscule high
The tiniest expression
Of Amazement
Art as vast and brief
As an Imagination
Of Critics, clustered
Around a microscope
Jostling to make
Gargantuan opinions
The world holds its breath
As a priceless collection
Vanishes. Inhaled.
Caught in the hair
Of a sneering nostril
The Mona Lisa smiles
Imperceptibly amused
That we always found her
Smaller than we imagined
As if she knows there is space
In the thickness of
A scant layer of paint
To shape a MicroCosmos
Of smirks and scowls
