Part 1 of a series of sculptures about elements
Hydrogen by Blake Ketchum 2011

Elements interact with each other through forces that attract and repulse. The relations are controlled by rules that influence the geometry and properties of groups of atoms, or molecules. The relationships among atoms bears resemblance to social interactions among people in some ways. This series explores those parallels in a way that I hope is accessible and a little but fun.
