Artist Claudia Puhlfurst has worked together with Andrew Zonenberg and the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York in order to create the smallest comic strip in the world, contained entirely on a single strand of human hair! The comic, titled ‘Juana Knits The Planet’ is made up of 12 individual panels, each measuring 25 micrometers in size, in order to tell a story of a girl creating a variety of items. This process was done using the FEI Versa 3D machine, using a focused ion beam in order to make extremely precise cuts in the hair. The end result is a comic strip that requires a microscope to even see, making this short story an ingenious combination of ambition and technology.
