Bringing Art to the Table

These delicate shapes form part of one of the more unusual depictions we've seen of the periodic table of elements - an art installation entitled "Divining Nature: An Elemental Garden," by artist Rebecca Kamen. Kamen spent three years working on the sculptures, each of which represents one of the 83 naturally occuring elements in the periodic table. The number of rods in each sculpture represents the atomic number of the element. The artwork translates the periodic table into a "garden of sculptural elements based on geometry and atomic number," says Kamen.
