Science through art

As a result of a project carried out for the Program to Stimulate Artistic Creation and Development (Pecda), the plastic artist Alba Esperanza Aguirre Arzate will present her exhibition Nanoenlaces in a virtual way, made up of drawings inspired by nanoscience and nanotechnology.

He indicated that his work consists of eight large-format pieces, inspired by the projects of the scientists Abigail Fraijo, Adolfo Romero and Carolina Gutirrez, in which he tries to transmit science from optics, tiny atoms, frequency waves and silver nanoparticles .

It is an interesting topic, nanosciences and nanotechnology is something that is coming in the future or in the near future with new materials and new concepts of perceptions, and I told myself that it would be very good to do related works about these young scientists, and that it be like a kind of record of the projects of these people as art, relat.

The plastic artist considers that it was a difficult project in terms of learning new definitions and concepts, as well as understanding the nano and micro levels, because although her artistic work has focused on science, until then it had only been on topics astronomy and physics.

Likewise, he added that in the elaboration of sketches and elements to assemble the pieces, he tried to keep them simple and not saturate them with information, so that each drawing, made with graphite and charcoal, only contains between four and six elements, with the intention of not lose the concept of each portrayed project.

Aguirre Arzate commented that the exhibition will be through the page, where you will find the photographs of the drawings and images of the elaboration process, as well as a video in which he explains a little about this process .

The plastic artist added that her Atemporal exhibition, made up of 10 of the pieces with which she began her career focused on scientific topics, such as astronomy and physics, will remain open to the public until February 28 at the Casa de la Cultura.
