One hundred and fifty years ago, Russian chemist Dmitri Mendeleev published the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements. To mark the anniversary, artists Damon Kowarsky and Hyun Ju Kim created a series of 51 artworks illustrating the birth of the Universe through significant elements from the Periodic Table. The Melbourne-based pair spoke with Ed about the collection, which is launching July 18th at Quantum Victoria.
