Franziska Schenk’s work on nature’s iridescent hues and millennia-old colour optics, complemented by scientific study, have led her to adapt and adopt new nano-materials for painting. The resulting artwork, like iridescent creatures, fluctuates in perceived colour and pattern, depending on the light and vantage. Her work, From Mimesis to Biomimetics: Towards Smarter Art, has most recently been presented at Max Planck Institute, Dresden in June 2019.
