Creating Art & Nanotechnology artworks leading to journal publications and to Art & Science exhibitions could also benefit Environmental scientists to observe atmospheric changes in microclimatic conditions as well as Health scientists to improve nanomaterials. Using the diaphanous nanomaterial silica aerogel in Visual Arts and creating clouds into silica aerogel sculptures, could also improve public’s perception for scientific research and make informed decisions regarding climate change and how it affects our everyday behaviours. This interdisciplinary research is breaking silos between Art and Science.
