NanoFormGiving through Haptic Aesthetic Laborations 
The NanoForm project has been under way since spring 2009. The overall objective is to develop methodology for artistic research in an interdisciplinary encounter that investigates connections between nano-structures and haptics. The task at hand is to boost knowledge of nanoscience and nanotechnology, while simultaneously learning more about haptics and the sense of touch. Crucial to the project is further development of aesthetic laboratory experiments in which all the senses — but especially touch — and haptics are used for creative and detective purposes
Nanoscience and nanotechnology keep numerous specialists busy, attract substantial research funding and already, today, affect our everyday activities and our lives. The NanoForm project seeks to invite the public into the nano world.


The innovative NanoForm project seeks to provide an aesthetic
approach to develop human sensitivity to the intangible nanoscale by
interacting with and creating and interacting with nanostructures

NanoForm

SwedNanoTech och NanoForm-gruppen bjuder gemensamt in ledande forskare, företagare, designers, arkitekter och konstnärer som arbetar med nano för att tillsammans undersöka olika fenomen: vad är en nanoyta, en nanopartikel, en nanovätska? Träffa de som har arbetat fram utställningen Nano på Visualiseringscenter C, fysiker som demonstrerar krafter på ett sätt du aldrig tidigare sett. Upptäck med luktsinnet tillsammans med en välkänd smakexpert! Med konkreta verktyg dyker vi in i en abstrakt värld! 

Hur ska man förklara det som inte går att se? Ja, först måste man själv begripa hur material och ämnen uppför sig på nanonivå. Och det lättaste sättet är att få uppleva ett direkt eller indirekt möte med nano-krafter och rörelser!  Domen på Visualisceringcenter C i Norrköping är scenen för detta möte.  Där kommer flera att framträda för att presentera och laborera kring olika fenomen på nanoskalan. Deltagarna tar plats på eller kring scenen för att tillsammans utforska material och tekniker som alla har en relation till nano. 

This NanoFormgiving project stared in april 2009 and was officially completed dec. 2012. We continue  to work on exhibitions and events that will be posted below.
