Startling Images Reveal Hidden World

Startling Images Reveal Hidden World

An exhibition on at the Gus Fisher Gallery, which combines art and science, will give the public a rare chance to view matter up close. Art of the Invisible: Exploring the invisible world of nanotechnology presents images from graduate students, who do research in the field, revealing magical pictures of science at a microscopic level.

Nanotechnology is the science of manipulating matter at an atomic and molecular scale and has far-reaching applications. Art of the Invisible presents this incredible field of study, in a new artistic context, and depicts the unexpected unworldly beauty found in these fascinating scientific images.

The students’ work on display is also in competition for the best nanotechnology image and the winner will receive a prize of $1,000. Second prize takes $700 and third prize will be awarded $300.

“The exhibition is a marvellous opportunity to highlight the beauty and power of the nano world through microscopic imaging” says Linda Tyler, Director of the Gus Fisher Gallery.”

The exhibition is organised by the MacDiarmid Institute for Advanced Materials and is being held in conjunction with AMN6: the Sixth International Conference on Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology, to be held at The University of Auckland Business School, from 11-15 February.

Art of the Invisible: Exploring the invisible world of nanotechnology opens on Friday 8 February at 6pm at the Gus Fisher Gallery, 74 Shortland Street and runs until 20 February.

The University of Auckland’s National Institute of Creative Arts and Industries comprises the School of Architecture and Planning, Elam School of Fine Arts, the Centre for Art Studies, the School of Music and the Dance Studies Programme.

Gordon Campbell:
On Gaza And Burning The Israeli Flag

One of the selling points in New Zealand’s campaign for a temporary seat on the Security Council is that we have a pluckily independent voice to offer on international conflicts.

This image is not entirely self-delusional. When we did occupy a temporary UN Security Council seat in the 1990s, New Zealand was forthright about the need for the international community to actively respond to the Rwanda genocide. On April 14, 1994, New Zealand, Nigeria and the Czech Republic were the only nations to call for a forceful UN intervention to halt the killings. It was a proud moment in the diplomatic record of the Bolger government.

What then, is the current National government doing with respect to the slaughter in Gaza? More>>
