Faces are drawn from photographs of Polish and Russian crowd scenes from 1917 and the Second World War. Each face represents an atom, also distinguished by their headbands (N for Nitrogen, O for Oxygen, C for Carbon, H for Hydrogen) and their colour (Nitrogen is Purple, Oxygen is Blue, Carbon is Red, Hydrogen is Green). They are grouped to form the general components of the atmosphere – 80% Nitrogen, 19.9% Oxygen, 0.1% Carbon Dioxide (and other gases).
