Periodic Table Project

I thought you all might want another look at the Periodic Table Project Azure Gackle put together. Various printmakers signed up to create a print for each element in the Periodic Table. It is almost complete. It has been up here but there are new people around so, here it is again!!!

Re: Periodic Table Project

I have to say that I thoroughly enjoy working on these joint ventures, especially this one. It made me think outside my comfort zone, which is good. It will be great when all entries are finally done.

Re: Periodic Table Project

Diane, which element is yours? Mine is Rutherfordium, 104. For some reason the other link isn't working - try this...

Re: Periodic Table Project

I had Nitrogen, 7. Part of the fun was researching something that would make sense for the element.

Re: Periodic Table Project

Isn't it looking great now, with only 4 more prints to come! I had stopped checking it as some were so slow in coming in. Thanks for giving us a nudge, B.

Re: Periodic Table Project

Lynn and Zar, which are yours??? Yes I wish I had done mine differently however it does have a cartoonish look that I still kind of like. Not as impressive as some of the others. But like you Z I like to experiment!

Re: Periodic Table Project

My print was Gallium 31. I had fun doing it and have tried hard to keep myself from comparing it to all the others to it's detriment. Good to know that I'm not the only one who second guesses myself! I, too, feel honored and humbled to have my work appear with all the fabulous artists who contributed.

I really hope it gets published somehow - I think it merits a book. If not a book, or as well, I hope it gets reproduced as a poster...

Re: Periodic Table Project

It really becomes almost quilt-like when you can see it with almost all the pieces assembled. I enjoyed the experience and also hope it gets more exposure once complete. Love to see it full size.

Re: Periodic Table Project

Mine were Iridium and Nobelium, 77 and 102. Likewise, they were both experiments, and I wish I had been able to get more prints out of the series. I have sold two of each on ETSY, that pretty much depletes my stock!

No need for any second guessing here.....some very excellent prints from our group. It was great to have the challenge of such an interesting project.

If I remember correctly it was ,hopefully to be published as a poster .I think all the elements were to be sent in before june so it may not happen . it would be nice to see it in a poster with perhaps a small booklet in which all the artist give short desciption of the proccess and why they chose their element (s)

Re: Periodic Table Project

Nice to meet you, Heft (aka Tantalum Ta73)... Yes, it would be nice to see it published.

Has anyone suggested this to Azure Crackle? I know lulu.com does a really good job on self-publishing. Maria Arango's 'selling at art fairs' was very nice... I know I would buy a copy if published. I also think some science-oriented people would also be interested!

Re: Periodic Table Project

Diane and Zardoz, on the Flikr site there was a discussion about publication, several ideas were suggested and I know Azure Grackle is following something up. Also she is looking for exhibition space for the show. I don't know where things are at this point.

I just had a look at the Project website, and under Discussion, check out Recruiting an Army. That's the posts about what the next stage could be.

Re: Periodic Table Project

I just emailed Jenn to see what she has come up with and if she needs help with the last 4 elements. I have had comments from non-printmakers saying they would love a book, so I suggested that.

Also a display in museums and corporations, I was going to help contact my company - which designs power plants and does environmental remediation as well as process chemistry, but have to wait until it is completed to do so.
