About the Element
While 118, ununoctium, has been isolated, 117, ununseptium, has not been isolated.

About the Print
In thinking of imagery of isolation and then its opposite, I ended up with prison isolation cells and then the prison number tattoo with reference to being in the general population. I also show reference to the search for an island of stability in larger elements. This particular pull of the print came out light, but fit with the undiscovered nature of 117.

Wood pyrograph intaglio.
