(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.
