A Journey Inside the Matter
The exhibition is based on the book: Nanocosmos Architecture, published by Nanocitec, which traces a journey inside the matter recreated through the window of science and art. The images that make up this experience were taken with a Transmission Electron Microscope. The exhibition shows among other things, as the color that exhibits matter at the nanoscale depends among other aspects of shape and size. The color of nanoscopic pieces of matter is different if these pieces are cubic, spherical or cylindrical. The architecture of the matter determines the behavior at these scales. The first exhibition was organized by the Geophysical Institute, Pontificia Universidad Javeriana and Nanocitec.

Triangular silver nanoparticles of 50 nanometers edge individually exhibit a red color, but when they are placed in a colloidal dispersion the color displayed is blue. The same triangular nanoparticles but truncated in the tips, exhibit individually a orange color, although in colloidal dispersion their color is violet. © NanoCiTec.
