Trust

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

2015 Guinness World Record for “The smallest sculpture of a human form”

‘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.

Destruction Of The Sculptures

The Making Of…

Photogrammetry

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.
