They form part of a series of artworks investigating colour in human experience, creativity and science. This informs the materials, making and reading of the works. These experimental book forms are bound with the structural formulas of chemicals that contribute to the colouring and forming of our world. The pages are circular and elliptical and draw upon dynamic scientific diagrams, from the sketches of Galileo to models of particle physics.
