Paintings Made with Iridescent Nanopaints Change Color on the Spot

Posted on Friday 27th April 2012

The work of School of Biosciences Artist in residence Franziska Schenk has been featured online by Scientific American. Fraziska's work is concerned with the complex interrelationship between humans and the natural world.

 Her fascination with the varied textures, patterns and shifting kaleidoscopic colours that have evolved in nature, has led her to extensively research and experiment with unconventional biomimetic painting techniques, including the latest nature-inspired colour-shift technologies. Much of her research into the nature of iridescence was carried out at the School of Biosciences.
