Abstract

Hostage pt.1 is the title of the blackest black nano engineered artwork (painting)  in the world.

 

Artist Statement

Redrawing the boundaries between art, science, technology and society by applying nano technology to develop the blackest black artworks in the world  able to capture ALL light.

An attempt to redefine traditional painting.

Deep Space is my first artwork.

The contemporary philosopher Giorgio Agamben, following Aristotle, remarks that the fact that we see darkness means that our eyes have not only the potential to see, but also the potential not to see. (If we had only the potential to see, we would never have the experience of not-seeing.)
