Shane Hope's Nano Art Gives the Illusion of Growth

It's normal for people to grow vegetables, raise livestock for food, but it's not a common thing to come across someone who grows their own nano art.

New York-based artist Shane Hope created 'Nano-Nonobjective-Oriented Ontograph' and 'Qubit-Built Quilts' through nano science and 3D printing. The 3D cellular-based art works looks like something you'd see through a microscope. The art pieces appear to be growing mold, but it's probably the effect the artist was going for.

It takes great hardships of growing something from a molecular basis. The results from Hope’s experiment are these amazing nano-based art pieces that will intrigue most people.

Hope received his MFA at the University of California San Diego, University of California Los Angeles, the San Francisco Art Institute, and the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture.
