Nanoart by Danya Linsteadt

When prompted to discuss nanotechnology, I think of the pictures I’ve seen of nano art, more specifically, pictures of a tiny stick figure constructed of Au atoms (http://web.viu.ca/krogh/chem122/nanoman.jpg). For this reason, I chose to do some research on nano art. What I found went far beyond a nano stick figure. I found a beautiful etching of a sun made of gold atoms in a silicon chip (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GpDn2qOHl8U#). Then I found something I find even more fascinating, ferrofluid (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ferrofluid). Ferrofluid is a substance comprised of iron particles, oil, and a soap like substance to keep the iron suspended in the oil. The iron particles are magnetic making the fluid respond to magnets. I found a video describing how the process works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PvtUt02zVAs. Ferrofluid can be used to make some beautiful art including sculptures that move in response to music (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XUz1ZI-w6LQ&feature=related, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=me5Zzm2TXh4&feature=related, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zpBxCnHU8Ao&feature=related). I shared these videos with my friend and he was quite impressed. Ferrofluid is also used for more functional applications such as creating air tight seals on moving parts. I think Ferrofluid is a great example of science and technology being used in artistic applications.
