Picture of the day

It is my pleasure to introduce you to the works of Cris Orfescu.

Cris has been a friend for the past four years, one who's work I find both pleasing and informative.

Cris Orfescu, Vitreous reticulated Carbon foam ligaments and micropore

(Go ahead, I dare ya, say that three times real fast!)

Image derived from black and white Scanning Electron Microscope image that was digitized and computer painted.

NANOART - Limited edition prints. Nano-dimensional features of different materials are revealed with an electron microscope after samples have been previously prepared. The image is created by electrons (electric charged particles) rather then photons (particles of light) as in photography. The black and white electron microscope image is digitally processed, computer painted and manipulated, and printed with archival inks on fine art archival paper or canvas - contact the artist for details. All prints are signed and numbered by the artist.

As with previous pictures, I will post the others in this series over time. To see it all now, visit the Nanotechnology Now Gallery.
