A nano sculpture about trust, tiny in space yet born of a love spanning a lifetime.

‘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.


Cupid and Psyche

The first Kiss


In this embrace on the head of an ant, I tell the mythical story of love lost, a journey, great challenges and a finally a moment of joining.

Destruction of the Sculptures


The making of...


Journalist Sarah Anderson has in my view written the most beautiful article exploring these nano sculptures.  You can find it here at 3Dprint.com

Rendering the Micro Structure

At the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Nano Micro Facility. In the "clean room" laboratory under yellow light, rendering the sculpture in a sterile environment on a nanoscribe machine.

Thank you to the amazing team behind this project

Its wonderful to see such a diverse group of people come together on this R&D project. The merging of art and science is a beautiful symbol of our time. 

The final testament to any research project is what it yields.  These images speak for themselves in my view.  Each of you has shone. Thank you.
