Abstract:

  • Keywords: nano-optics, optical variable devices (OVDs), plasmonics, pixels, nanofabrication, imaging and data storage, art-science, new media.

    This project explores and expands modes of expression in media arts and communication practices through the development of nanotechnology and nano-manufacturing processes. The demonstration showcases techniques, prototypes and possible applications of ‘nano-media,’ from publishing and security to interactive wearable fabrics and entertainment. This new kind of media surface uses nano-sized pixels to produce extraordinary optical effects for displays while also storing analog or digital data, fusing the instruments and matters of vision and information. Emerging from technology developed for security/authentication, our ongoing collaboration with artists and media scholars has resulted in scientific and aesthetic breakthroughs in the field of nano-optics by drawing inspiration from many analog media techniques, such as Dufay color film. Here we show examples of our ongoing developments.
