Project Description

The purpose of this single-page spot illustration is to accompany an article introducing nanotechnology to an educated lay audience by providing a compelling visualin a magazine such as Scientific American or National Geographic. The art is meant to instill enthusiasm in the reader as they learn of the collaboration of nanotechnology with biology. Such passion is important, as nanorobotics hopes to allow for the diagnosis and treatment of many diseases and the intervention of various conditions without the need for surgery. Nanorobots are also expected to destroy microorganisms and tumor cells that are at risk of infection from inside the body, to stop brain hemorrhages without surgery, to clean dangerous wastes at micro level and even to be used in cell repair. By showcasing the nano-level system as part of the body’s molecular universe, the image hopes to instill the same sense of discoveryand wonder associated with space exploration devices.
