We were never that good at chemistry. Hydrogen bonds and noble gases couldn't compete with the joys of obliterating Claire Stevens' pencil case with a Bunsen burner.

The Nigerian-born, Brooklyn-based artist and designer has drawn inspiration from the periodic table, transforming the states of the USA, countries of Africa and states of Chicago, Brooklyn and Manhattan into brilliantly clear infographic maps.

Boroughs of London next please Jeyifous?
