Five Elements




Five Elements

Originally uploaded by skarmj.

This is my piece for this months Mefi mailswap. It was a bit of a slog working out what to do, the theme (five elements) was a bit specific for my usual methods. So I settled on drawing with the letters of the words something similar to a coded alchemical illustration. The lighter grey text is from the wikipedia entry on the Greek Elements (but distorted with a script that jumbles the letters with the formula x=k*x*(1-x)). The two photographs behind the text are 1. my sister beside a window (no particular reason for this) 2. a glass vase. Glass is quite a good material for work about the elements (made of sand, formed in fire, often contains bubbles, and resembles ice).
