Modern art restored with nanotechnology
We’re constantly looking for innovative ways to improve the Springwise experience, and so we’re now introducing BeeLine Reader, a new technology that helps you read more quickly and efficiently. To learn more about BeeLine Reader, an award-winning startup funded by Intel Capital, see BeeLineReader.com.
Faced with rapidly degrading plastic-based modern artworks, conservators have joined forces with materials scientists, technology companies, museums and universities to set up Nanorestart. The project’s goal is to create new methods of art conservation using advanced restoration methods and nanotechnology to clean, stabilize and preserve paintings. The chemical properties of newer paints are so different to those of classical oil-based works that traditional conservation methods do not work. Nanotechnology is allowing conservators to get inside the compounds of the materials, cleaning from the inside and hopefully, finding ways to halt and prevent any further degradation of the materials. Largely funded…
