Investigations of the invisible.

INL Nanochemistry Research Group is working on the enhancement and optimization of printed solar cell technologies, and exploring how nanotechnology may increase efficiency of photovoltaic cells. Joanie Lemercier has been hosted in residence at INL to follow this research.
He had access to lab samples and conducted microscope observations at various stages of the process.

This exhibition is an attempt to communicate some of the experiences he encountered, from a visual artist perspective. 

The initial exhibition presented in Braga, Portugal, is composed of 3 pieces:
1- Invisible drawings
2- Microscope images
3- 4k video

1- Invisible drawings

Title: Possible structures
Installation: Plotter drawings, Yellow and UV ink, orange and UV light. (2018)
A selection of drawings inspired by SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope) observations of printed solar cells components.
The drawings were generated by algorithms, and executed by a small drawing robot with special ink, to be revealed only under a specific light spectrum.


2- Electron Microscope images

Title: Selenium (Se)
Electron microscope images (2018)
An exploration of unreacted Selenium clusters.
Selenium is a chemical element with symbol Se and atomic number 34, and was discovered in 1817.
Its name comes from the Greek ‘selene’ meaning “Moon”.

3- Microscapes (4k video)

Title: Microscapes
4K video, sound (2018) A combination of real images captured with a SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope) and 3D reconstructions of structures observed on printable solar cells components currently in development at INL.
