Graphic communications student Rebecca Tarran created the "Periodic Table of Burgers" as her final piece for her foundation diploma. Her description: "Exploration of the chemicals and rubbish used in the burgers of the fast food industry." Elements include good ol' carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen...along with plastic bags, insecticides, and manure. View larger images of the table and the burgers at rebeccatarranportfolio.tumblr.com.
