Elements Are Clickable
This piece is based on the well-known Periodic Table of Elements, the most important chemistry reference there is. A whole world exists within each element, the basic substance that makes up all matter. This Table explores a breadth of physical items, events, emotions and new words that have accumulated over the course of the pandemic commenting on daily rituals, routines, circumstances and vocabulary that have documented this this unchartered time.    This Table is ever-changing, with potential new words and definitions to be added at any moment, pending life circumstances. The original Periodic Table of Elements has two empty spaces, reserved for elemental properties that have yet to be discovered. Created by Robyn Awend. With Design Assistance from Avery Nordin.
