(Crayola Colour Chart, a digital collage from Jamie Shovlin, exhibited at the Tate. He sorted his crayon’s by hue in an attempt to form tetrads - combinations of colours from four equidistant points around the circle that when combined create perfect greys. There are 720 possible tetrad combinations with this many crayons and although Shovlin started the combinations, he gave up after trying out about twenty or so. Even that shows a heck of a lot of patience.)
