(João Martinho Moura, 2018-2019)
An artistic exploration of how, with the help of scientific advances in nanotechnology and artificial intelligence, a new generation of nano-clusters are replacing critical natural resources becoming rare on planet Earth. Imagine one millimeter … now, divide it by one million. That is one nanometer, an incredibly small-scale unit where Sci-fi Miners’ narrative happens, a journey beginning at the millimeter scale (1mm), ending at the size of one nanometer (1nm), employing virtual reality technologies.
Work designed by João Martinho Moura with the support of the STARTS Residencies as part of the STARTS program of the European Commission, based on the technological elements of the CritCat Project (INL)
