‘Nano World’ Science Art Exhibition

By B.Tungalag
“Nano World” Science Art Exhibition was unveiled at the Mongolian National Modern Art Gallery on November 11. The Association of Developing Mongolian Modern Art and The Mongolian National Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology jointly organized the exhibition. The purpose of the exhibition is to give context about the development of nanotechnology and its importance through art. The show featured the best artworks from participants of the “Science as Art” competition, which has been organized by the Materials Research Society in the USA since 2006, and artwork by the famous Swiss artist and photographer, Fabian Oefner. The exhibition will be open for only three days, and closes on November 13.
Developed countries have built strong economies based on technological knowledge. New technology and products created by human ingenuity bring wonder to our world. Organizers of “Nano World” believe that Mongolia is also capable of becoming a country with an economy based on knowledge. The organizers aimed to present information about nanotechnology to youth through art. They hope that their interest in this sector, and in the developments of the future, will be inspired by seeing the exhibition.
About the National Center of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology
The National Center of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology was established in 2008. The main objective of the National Center of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology is to search and discover the structure of atomic molecules through nanoscience and the study of gravity. The center observes open cooperation with contract researchers.
About Fabian Oefner
Fabian Oefner (born 1984, Switzerland) is a curious investigator, photographer and artist, whose work moves between the fields of art and science. His images capture, in unique and imaginative ways, natural phenomena that appear in our daily lives, such as sound waves, centripetal forces, iridescence, or the unique properties of magnetic ferroliquids. His exploration of the unseen and poetic facets of the natural world is an invitation, as he says, “to stop for a moment and appreciate the magic that constantly surrounds us.”
Oefner’s photographs have been exhibited in various countries and are part of private collections around the globe. Besides pursuing his own projects, he also collaborates with influential international brands on ad campaigns and art projects. He works and lives in Switzerland.
