The Midas project, installation at the Enter 3 Prague 2007 presented a projection of a single cell where a genetic algorithm was written for semi autonomous self-organizing nanobots to affect the digital image. Photo © Paul Thomas

Nanotouch Skin to gold.

The latest strategy for the development of this project was suggested by Peter Hinterdorfer, Ph.D. Associate Professor Institute for Biophysics Johannes Kepler University of Linz.

This method was to coat the tip of the AFM with gold and scan a single cell.

The project investigates the transition phase between gold and skin is based initially on a collaboration with Symbiotica and then with Nanochemistry Research Institute (NRI). The change in data that can be recorded of the atoms vibration in relationship to the transition phase between skin and gold will be gathered and archived to use for the main resource in the generation of the art work. In these images I have place grown skin cells on to silk with the help of Bioteknica, Canadian contemporary artists Jennifer Willet and Shawn Bailey who were artists in residence at Symbiotica.
