I create Art from Science using Technology. My art is a reflection of my background and interest in art, materials science, computer technologies and nanotechnology and is called NANOART. I think people should know what’s going on in the micro-world in order to not be afraid of all kinds of “nano-things” (nanotechnology, nanoscience, nanopowders…) that are happening right now with the new technological revolution. The ideas behind my art are the interpretations of the technological movement. Art is becoming interdisciplinary. New media are used more and more. New technology is used more and more. We live in a technological society and there is no reason why Art should stay away from Technology. I bring the nano-dimensional world to the public through high resolution electron microscope images computer painted and digitally processed. I try to find similarities with the world we live in, so people will become familiar with the novel technologies in a more appealing way.

ARTIST(S): S/N Coalition

S/N Coalition is an electronic art group, which works extensively with video, sound, animation, photography and locative media. Their exhibitions often include
performative elements and mediated footage, pushing both experimental and conceptual ideas around media. S/N members include Jennida Chase and Hassan Pitts who have been creating collaborative work together since 2008.

Project Information:
The Handy-Video remix collection is a new media project in which S/N Coalition remix the urban landscape of Berlin. The remixes are video/sound-hybrids, which visually feature street art and sonically feature various neighborhoods, transportation systems and markets. Over 150 remixes were installed back in to the cityscape via QR-Codes. The codes are accessible via internet enabled CCD devices (such as cell phones and mp3 players).
