Nano Novels


This website documents Julie Freeman’s artist residency with Professor Jeremy Ramsden, at the Microsystems and Nanotechnology Centre, Cranfield University, UK.

Nano Novels: 16 graphic artworks, inspired by nanotechnology. Each artwork is accompanied by some ’stereo literature’ – factual scientific text and metaphorical text. On 16th November 2008 the temporary large scale 1.8 x 1.2 meter artworks were installed at Cranfield University. Click for installation shots.
