How can you ever know that these sculpture really exists?
‘Your only way to engage with it is through a screen, and a mouse separating you and the art via a vacuum and a series of mathematically mind-blowing quantum processes that shower the art with particles to map its contours’, Hurwitz explains.

These nano sculptures are created using 3D printing technology and a technique called multiphoton lithography, which works to create super-small features within a photosensitive material. Ultimately the pieces are created using the physical phenomenon of two photon absorption.
