Week 9 - Day 1 & 2 print/matt




This is my print/ matt that represents the element Gallium. Gallium has an atomic number 31 and I choose to draw a bike because some bike frames are made out of gallium. I will tell you that search and thinking of things the draw for this element was difficult to me but I choose the bike. Gallium was discovered spectroscopically by the French chemist Paul-Émile Lecoq de Boisbaudran in 1875. Gallium also melts so in room temperature or higher it will turn into a liquid. AT first, for my print, I was just going to draw a bike frame but when I looked at it, I told myself that people might not know what is is so I added the wheels to make a complete bike but I wanted the main focus of the print to be the bike frame . If I were to do this again, I would do more research about the element to see where it comes from and what object of today are made out of gallium.
