Examining art that intersects with science and seeks to make visible what cannot ordinarily be seen with the naked eye, Nanoart provides insight into new understandings of materiality and life. It includes an extensive overview of the history of nanoart from the work of Umberto Boccioni to the present day. The author looks specifically at art inspired by nanotechnological research made possible by the scanning tunneling microscope and atomic force microscope in the 1980s, as well as the development of other instruments of nanotechnological experimentation to offer a sustained consideration of this fascinating artistic approach.
