Thanks to recent advances in molecular science and nanotechnology, we are now able to transcend the limits of natural perception and see layers of matter previously invisible to the naked eye. This book documents both the aesthetic and cognitive developments in what Félix Guattari once coined the »Molecular Revolution« (1977). Yet for the first time in this volume, artists and scientists jointly explore previously unseen and unknown empirical and theoretical objects. The book suggests ways in which art and science can draw inspiration from one another.
