109: A Visual Interpretation of the Table of Elements
109 is a visual arts and science collaborative project which aims to explore and reflect upon the diversity of elements that comprise matter in as unique and innovative manner as possible. 109 aims to produce a new and vibrant visual assessment of the startling diversity of material that constitutes the world in which we live, not simply by rendering images of the respective elements but also by investigating the manner in which they affect our daily lives in largely unseen and often unexpected ways. The site contains an interactive periodic table. Clicking on any element in the table brings up a web page with practical, historical, and physical information and animations relating to that element. The site also has a section entitled Periodic Landscapes which contains computer generated landscape views and models based on various patterns and relationships within the periodic table. The site also includes a brief history of the periodic table, free e-postcards, and more.
