The short paper plots the inclusion of an art workshop within the realm of the nanotechnological laboratory. The history given to us by Robert Hooke in his book Micrographia, reveals a symbiotic relationship between art and science through the drawings created from his enhanced perceptions through the microscope. This history is re-embedded in the present tense with evidence of the research produced by artists engaged in Force/Magnitude workshop exploring the contemporary imaging via the atomic force microscope.

More about this publication?
  • Ubiquity is an international peer reviewed journal for creative and transdisciplinary practitioners interested in technologies, practices and behaviours that have the potential to radically transform human perspectives on the world. "Ubiquity", the ability to be everywhere at the same time, a potential historically attributed to the occult is now a common feature of the average mobile phone. The title refers explicitly to the advent of ubiquitous computing that has been hastened through the consumption of networked digital devices. The journal anticipates the consequences for design and research in a culture where everyone and everything is connected, and will offer a context for visual artists, designers, scientists and writers to consider how Ubiquity is transforming our relationship with the world.
