We are pleased to present the first in an ongoing series of special sections exploring the intersections of nanotech/nanoscience and art.

We welcome submission of manuscripts documenting artworks related to nanotech/nanoscience; essays from scientists, engineers and scholars exploring the connection between nanotech/nanoscience and art; and illustrated essays documenting the use of the arts as a pedagogical tool in nanotech/nanoscience education.

Interested artists and authors are encouraged to send proposals, queries and/or manuscripts on this topic to the Leonardo editorial office:
