Installation, video and graphic techniques, since 2016 and in progress
Art and science project, in collaboration with Dr. Roberto de la Rica, who conducts his research in the field of nanotechnology applied to biomedicine.
In 2016, thanks to a mobility grant for artists from CAC Ses Voltes, I was able to visit Dr. Roberto de la Rica's laboratory at the Department of Chemistry, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow. After a week at the University of Strathclyde I did a three-week residency at the Edinburgh Scupture Workshop production centre, where this sculpture was produced.
The Golden Nanoparticle
The Golden Nanoparticle is a 5 x 1,5 m. approx. metal sculpture.
The piece reproduces in the space the form of a gold nanoparticle, from which Dr. de la Rica studies the possibility of teragnosis, diagnosis and treatment of damaged cells.
Nano Rods Stars
Video made as a site-specific piece during the residency in Etopia, Centro de Arte y Tecnología, for the digital facade of the art center. The piece recreates in outer space the interactions between gold nanoparticles that could treat a body from the inside. The building is located in front of an access road to the city, one of the main arteries of Zaragoza, the building in this case acts as a nanoscope of the blood circulation of the body.
Nanoscopic images of gold, intervened with its own dissolution and marker.
