The Abyss Table by Duffy London

This mesmerising table was first conceived by Christopher Duffy — and ultimately refined by the team at Duffy London — to represent a 3D geological map of an ocean floor. The Abyss Table makes use of contour lines, which are often used to denote topography in terrain maps, to render an island chain and ocean abyss.

Contour lines can be thought of as workaround for the 2D limitations of paper maps, but Duffy instead relished these simplifications which have become iconic imagery for the field of cartography. He incorporates layers of wood to represent the land, and panes of glass for the water, in order to produce a 3 dimensional geographical model.

"Tersiguel’s"
Oil on Canvas
2014

My painting for Ellicott City’s Plein-Air event this year. SO tempted to title it “I work here and that’s why I didn’t have enough time to work on this painting”
Not my best.

You know time will give and time will take
All the memories made will wash away
Even though we’ve changed, I’m still here with you
If you listen close, you’ll hear the sound
Of all the ghosts that bring us down
Hold on to what makes you feel
Don’t let go, it’s what makes you real

What a simple illustration for something very profound.

Snow fell yesterday
And today leaves the bushes low to the ground
I read to myself his remembrances
Bound in his brother’s handmade book

I can never be certain what made him
So celestial to us
He was such a burly, physical man, and yet
His presence so ethereal, so light and lofty

As if his voice should have been something to issue from a small bird
Or a lamb, yet everything and everyone
Depended on his words
They were important;

Beautiful and delicate
Ever full of truth and simple wisdom
We waited for them; hoped for them
With baited breath, until the end.

I was told that a dark haired friend of mine
Saw him walking in the garden
Briskly and with great purpose as he once walked
Before tremors crept up into his limbs

And I wept
For I remember him this way
The way a human should be
The way I long to be

Fear could not consume him
He played against no opponent
But only lived, persevered, overcame
The obstacles which tried to paralyze his soul

"Admiration and Aversion to Paralysis"

As the swan’s last song is the sweetest of it’s life, so loss is made endurable by love, and it is love that will echo through eternity.

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods;
There is a rapture on the lonely shore;
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more…

Lord Byron
