Threading science, art, and technology, Shane Hope uses open-source nanomolecular design software to create and manipulate molecular models, which he assembles by the thousands into painterly 3-D prints. Equal parts scientific and fantastical, organic and digital, Hope’s holographic creations hint at the infinite possibilities of genetics and molecular physics, as well as the notion of “hacking matter.” As he has said: “The ability to assemble things from-the-molecule-up could give rise to borderline costless systems for controlling the structure of matter itself.”
