From the 22-Sept-2016, the Opera Gallery in London will be showing the artwork Body Obsessed World by scientific sculptor Jonty Hurwitz.
A set of stunning photographs that reveal the natural beauty in science are set to go on show to the public.
The 100 incredible images are the shortlisted entries for the Royal Photographic Society's International Images for Science competition and highlight how important photography is for academics.
The show includes a photo of one of the smallest 3D sculptures ever made, a surfing girl that measures just 150 micrometres tall, taken by Stefan Diller. The sculpture was made by nano-artist Jonty Hurwitz using a 3D printing technique called multiphoton lithography which tightens polymer resin with infrared light one 3D pixel at a time.
Gallerie de Medicis is proud to announce that from July 2016, Hurwitz's work "The Kiss of Chytrid" will be on display at 18 Place des Vosges, Paris.
They say that the question "How do you create your work of " the great Michelangelo replied : " I take a stone and cut off all unnecessary ." Jonty Hurwitz brought this principle to the limit, leaving no accidental microns .

Should you always believe what you see right in front of you? Can you really trust your senses? Has technology made things clearer or has it muddied the waters between reality and fiction? And is anything really as it seems?

‘CNN Ones to Watch’ captures Hurwitz’s figure of a woman who can only be viewed through a microscope, as she dances delicately on a single strand of human hair. His quest to merge art and science is limitless – he makes vast bronze sculptures using algorithms and mirrors which play with perspectives.
The programme follows Hurwitz in the laboratory at one of the world’s leading universities in engineering and natural sciences, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany, as the alchemist turned artist crafts a new work.
