ABSTRACT : In the case of nanoart, a consubstantial relationship is established between the human and the machine. It is reflected by various acts building up a hybrid syntagma: an embodied act, an act of tactile recognition by the machine, an act of tra(ns)duction or translation by the machine, the intervention of the artist and, finally, an act of materialization. The gesture may be an expressive one, when the fictionalization of living organisms leads to their aestheticization. Nanoart enounces them again, between imitation and reproduction, fictionalizing representation and presentation of what is turned to picture by simulation.
