Nanosférica: An Online Exhibition by the *particle group*

“Nanofabric is the new black in fashion apparel and accessories.”
—Hugo Boss, 2005

“Patenting particles makes everyone smile around here.”
—Harris & Harris Group (Nasdaq:TINY), 21 September 2005

"Think small, think really small and then think even smaller" and you almost will hit the miniscule trans-b.a.n.g.s (bits, atoms, neurons, and genes) at the core of today's particle transvergence. There's a rush to patent and fabricate particles, currently found in cosmetics, baby lotions, sunscreen, fabrics, paints, and inkjet paper. Industries now claim to control the vertical and horizontal axes of structures far smaller than "angels' dancing on the head of a pin." The sliding scale of the nano-world is one nanometer, a billionth of a meter, or about one twenty-fifth-millionth of an inch (far smaller than the world of everyday objects described by Newton's laws of motion, but bigger than an atom or a simple molecule).
