Jonty Hurwitz has created nano-sculptures for his latest art series. The project, both fascinating and over the top, features realistic figurative sculptures the size of a human sperm. All the work is invisible to the naked eye and must be viewed through the lens of a powerful scanning electron microscope. “Your only way to engage with it is through a screen and a mouse separating you and the art via a vacuum and a series of mathematically mind-blowing quantum processes that shower the art with particles to map its contours,” Hurwitz explains.
The sculptures are created using a 3D printing technology and a technique called multiphoton lithography, which works to solidify specific parts of the photosensitive material leaving some “soft” to be removed, revealing the tiny sculpture. Check out the unbelievable work below and watch the video in which Hurwitz explains the process and his inspirations.
