Squint or You’ll Miss the World’s Smallest Sculptures

British artist Jonty Hurwitz would like to show you his latest work, but you’ll need a magnifying glass to see it.

Hurwitz’s new “Nano” sculptures are tiny. Impossibly tiny. Like, too small to see with the naked eye tiny. Each sculpture is about 100 microns high — roughly the thickness of a strand of hair. Hurwitz’s infinitesimal pieces were created using a 3D printing technique called multiphoton lithography, a process that blasts microscopic pixels out of UV-sensitive polymer using a tightly focused UV light. Science! You can read more about it here.

But first, check out this gallery of his Nano collection. No squinting necessary. Note: Background images (ant, needle) were included for scale.
