This book will include two sets of drawings - 93+ each - paired with an intimate, sensual collection of the tangible, knowable stuff of each naturally occurring element of the periodic table. It is a reference book and introduction to the first hand experience of the elements, as well as a book of drawings, and it's about our inseparability with everything.
Discovering the collective knowledge and tangibility of the elements opens up a basic dimension of the world, body and being alive. As I explored I kept thinking, 'Where have I been this whole time?!?! How have I missed this?!'
From other people's research and common sources, I've gathered phrases about each element that relate to the senses: sight, sound, smell, taste, touch, and where the element shows up in 'stuff' and in physical places, how it interacts with air, water and fire.
I have avoided referencing mathematical and molecular formulas, references to science bigwigs, or special equipment....in a sense, un-siloing this information from Science, to yours.
Like the first two books, I build the book through crowdfunding so I connect with the community that cares about it. Also, this way I print what people reserve and any more than I can depending on money that is raised.
