A NEW WAY OF LOOKING AT HUMANITY
70 Data-rich “Dots” Represent People
at the Most Basic Molecular Level
(Nanoscale Unbiased TExtured Capture)
Obdulio Piloto b.1978
Obdulio Piloto uses NuTec molecular profiles to represent people as 70 data-rich spots where the profile specific coloration is associated to an individual in a given moment in time using technology he co-invented. He refers to these 70-spot molecular representations of people as molecular portraits.
They’re made possible by advances in nanotechnology, organic chemistry, materials science, molecular medicine, and artificial intelligence expanding 8 years in development.
The technology has the potential to save millions of lives by early detecting diseases.
How Dr. Piloto Captures a Person's Molecular Essence
A biofluid (e.g., blood) is collected from the artist or donor for processing.
A NuTec slide is incubated with the biofluid sample to allow molecules to bind onto the NuTec slide.
The NuTec slide is heat treated. This transforms the transparent NuTec spots into colored spots that reflect bound molecules.
The resulting, color-rich NuTec slide is scanned at high resolution.
