Periodic Table as Art? You Betcha!

site of the weekThis week's SOTW comes from the mind of an artist that goes by the name AzureGrackle aka Jennifer Schmitt.

Where does inspiration come from? Well for Jennifer it came in the form of previous artwork laid out for review on the floor and noticing that the layout of the prints resembled a Periodic Table of the elements. This connection between art and science might have been missed if the artist's mother hadn't been recently retired from teaching high school chemistry and physics for 30 years.
Periodic Table as Art

Once an artist is inspired Zymurgy's first law of evolving system dynamics takes over. What is this law? Well it states that "Once you open a can of worms, the only way to re-can them is to use a larger can." The idea was out there and there was no going back so Jennifer put the word out and the result is fantastic. For more insight into this project read an interview with Jennifer in Etsy.

From the project site
"Ninety-six printmakers of all experience levels, have joined together to produce 118 prints in any medium; woodcut, linocut, monotype, etching, lithograph, silkscreen, or any combination. The end result is a periodic table of elements intended to promote both science and the arts."
Well done to Jennifer and the 96 contributors!

The Periodic Table allows you to explore a broad range of information about the elements, their reactions, their properties, their structures, and their histories. periodic table
