Tehnică: Mixed technique
Concept: Marius Jurca’s experiments explore the way certain situations, materials or even perception, are causally dependent on invisible processes, processes that the human eye seems to fail to represent in an objective way. He Investigates the relationships between measurable biochemical parameters and nanometric materials. These materials are sensitive to temperature and ultraviolet light, they provide complex data sets as well as the raw matter for the “InVisible Steams “ series.

Concept: The SenzSkin object highlights the sensitivity of human skin as an interface between the human body and the environment. Following multiple measurements of the pH variation in artificial sweat, created in the laboratory of the National Research and Development Institute for Materials Physics, a series of diagrams resulted.The resulted became the input for generated three-dimensional virtual structure. The experiment allows the public to dynamically visualize an invisible biochemical process happening at skin level and speculate about future applications of biotechnologies and the way them can interfere with our physiological state of the human body.

Concept: FiberWow is a color study that aims to achieve colored gradients through multiple nanometer fiber depositions on various geometric shapes. The structures resulting from the multilayer deposition process show a special sensitivity, due to the extremely small dimensions of the nanofibers (approximately 200 nanometers) and due to the colored polymer solutions that are activated only in ultraviolet light. Depending on the density of the nanofibers, the visual results vary from subtle color gradients, specific to hexagonal geometric shapes, to spectacular color gradients, in. This experiment explores both the physical and aesthetic qualities of polymer electrospun nanofibers.

Concept: FiberStream is an interactive project that allows the public to influence the entropy of a dynamic system using their own breath. Blowing cold air over a geometric pattern, made of gold polymer nanofibers, extremely sensitive to temperature variation, offers the audience the opportunity to modify in real time the dynamics of a three-dimensional virtual structure. This process is also influenced by the interconnection of fibers that allow the flow of electric current to circulate in several directions. FiberStream highlights both the electrical conductivity of gold-plated polymer fibers, developed by National Institute of Materials Physics and the idea of energy generated by a spontaneous process. One such process is the cold air resulted when we breathe and it can change the degree of disorder of a thermodynamic process.
