"You don’t learn about yourself by being alone, you learn about yourself from other people."


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.

The world’s largest telescope made with data
Look up on a starry night and consider this: in our lifetime we just might find the answers to one of life’s biggest mysteries. Dutch research institute, Astron and its international partners are building the world’s largest radio telescope, aka The Square Kilometer Array. This big telescope will be made up of thousands of interconnected smaller telescopes, arranged in fractal patterns, to let us glimpse back in time more than 13 billion years ago—mere seconds after the universe was created. How on Earth is this possible?

Michal Mozolewski

Somewhere in Gdansk, deep within the clutches of Poland, lies a photo-manipulator, going by the name of Michal Mozolewski, who specialises in the metamorphosis of bland, stock model photos into butterfly-beautiful, edgy, and ambient images. His most intriguing pieces, personally to me, are the ones that are destructive, and subtractive of his models, ones which blend the grunge and darkness, the sometimes wistful white emptiness, or the vividly warm splatters of his creativity and mould it round his chosen stock photographs, taking away an essence of the humanity, and replacing it with abstract decoration.
