“Meta” periodic table


Bill Keaggy, who’s something of a list-artist (his collections of found grocery lists and sad chairs are also pretty amusing), brings us this periodic table of periodic tables. I’ve blogged about the vast number of alternative representations of the periodic table before, and while, apart from the division into themed “blocks,” there doesn’t seem to be any meta-logic organizing Bill’s meta-table that would correspond to the real logic that organizes the real periodic table, it’s definitely an entertaining notion. Static images are available from Bill’s Flickr stream. [via Boing Boing]
