Nanotech by Oscar Chacon

The concept of nanotechnology is really a division of study that mends together the studies of the arts and sciences into one fundamental study for the future. Nanotechnology is a strong leading advancement that will require the strongest efforts from both sides of study. At this point in nanotechnology, this revolution needs science and art to support it on its way to progress. As with the progression of nanotech to this day it has already been adapted to several street art pieces.

In relation to my final project on a robotic vehicle that can draw on walls nanotechnology has begun to adapt itself to this form of free expression. The group Graffiti Research Lab has been using LED lights in a variety of ways t express their art on the streets at a different level. They have created these small bunches of LED lights they call “LED Throwies.” They use them to decorate the streets in a more interactive manner than the usual form of graffiti. As described by the Graffiti Research Lab they are, “LED Throwies are an inexpensive way to add color to any ferromagnetic surface in your neighborhood. A Throwie consists of a lithium battery, a 10mm diffused LED and a rare-earth magnet taped together.” These are not only efficient use of nanotech but a very interactive way to work with public space. They have shown several videos of their works on their site.

They have also adapted this project to be able to express words using LED throwies in another project they call “Night Writer.” In this project they have used the same concept of design of LED throwies but formed them into letters that would then stick onto metal surfaces using clay.

There other simpler projects from the Graffiti Research Lab that use LED nanotechnology. Their “Post Circuit Board” combines the traditional use of postage stickers and their background in using LEDs to create a new piece. This piece is easily placed anywhere, specifically in mailboxes. This project is a tribute to the versatility of this art form and the technology that can be adapted to many aspects of life. It is interesting how art, even more so graffiti has been revolutionized by nanotechnology.

Nanotechnology has also been inspired from art and humanities studies. As statedin the article The Nanomeme Syndrome , “… media artists, nano-scientists and humanists need to join forces together and envision such possibilities.” Although this relatively new study needs more than just an inclusion of input just from the arts but from absolutely every humanities and science discipline. The reason for this interaction between nanotechnology and media artist is their, “common ground in addressing issues of manipulation.” Nanotechnology correlates very closely to study of media artist who are much like the scientist in nanotechnology in dealing with the manipulation of, “sensory perception and questioning our reaction.” It is going to be very interesting to watch the progression of this new study unfold in the following years with the studies of humanities, arts, science, and technology no longer divided into two cultures but advancing into this new revolution as one. I am going to be specifically interested in what the new works the Graffiti Research Lab will produce with the different future progression of nanotechnology.
