Abstract: The Perdu(e) series of images are digital paintings of nanofibre images that produce integrated, convergent, formative images by breaking down the boundaries between art and science, macroscopic and microscopic worlds, and abstraction and representation. I have added the emotional interaction between the paintings of the nanofibres and the viewers to extend the experience of creating their own creative supermicroscopic world. The Perdu(e) series is a result of images that were not reproduced images but were produced through me, as an artist, by my imagination. By passing the images through a computer, scientific technology, and my hand, this series is a new origin for art. These modified, transformed images represent living beings that can directly communicate with the spectators through the emotional interaction.
Keywords: nano art; digital painting; emotional interaction; storytelling; digital recreation; nanofibre images; digital images; image recreation; nanotechnology.
