The nanoart project Midas (2007) uses the skin cell as a visual metaphor for exploring the deterritorialised and reterritorialised nanobiological body. In the installation semi autonomous self-organizing nanobots affect the Atomic Force Microscopes (AFM) imaging of the skin cell transmuting it into gold. The Midas project examined what is transferred when skin touched gold. The installation consisted of a data projection and audio work. The recorded sets of data from the AFM in force spectroscopy and contact mode were processed through software applications, translating the relevant information into sound and image files.
