Visual Elements, sponsored by the Royal Society if Chemistry is a stunning periodic table uniting chemistry and digital art in an exciting collaborative project.
The Visual Elements web site provides a unique graphical interpretation of the chemical elements, making the periodic table fun and interesting. Computer generated images, animations and a soundtrack inspired by the elements are combined with detailed scientific data for the 109 elements currently officially recognised by IUPAC. The site also includes the unique Periodic Landscapes - 3D panoramas derived from trends and relationships within the Periodic Table: view static images or even fly-through the landscapes in the online movies!
Downloads for PCs and Macs include screen savers and wallpapers.
