Publisher Note

Inspired by the principle of reproducibility as a scientific method, this work should be seen as a diptych. In the mid-19th century, the German chemist Runge conducted experiments with reactants to apply on tissue paper. Each booklet shows a slightly different result from the same experiment. Blue, red and yellow RISO ink was randomly assigned to the original color separation channels.
