This Minimalist Periodic Table Turns Electrons into Art

By Eric Limer on at

Nerds have been decorating with the periodic table for longer than most people can remember, but let's face it: it's never looked good. This lovely minimalist interpretation does the impossible and actually makes it mesmerising to behold, even if it's slightly less informative.

Designed by Alison Haigh, the print is just barely a period table. Instead of numbers and letters, each element on this table gets one white dot for each of its electrons. That's it. Beautiful simplicity. Prints are available if you shoot the artist an email. Copernicium never looked so good. [Alison Haigh via Popular Science]
