'We kept all we could'—Daniel Michael Clark
An ignited flare of natural gas erupts 200ft into some night, now long forgotten. At the foot of the image, the voiceprint of an anonymous woman (circa. 1946) whispered the words: ‘We kept all we could’. The sound of her voice—educed directly from this print—can be heard here.

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.

"We have fought too long and too hard to eliminate the wounds of racism and prejudice just to watch things regress. Until black people no longer have to fear both the cops and robbers, until we reform policing tactics everywhere, we cannot stay silent. For if we do, we will continue to read headlines like this: Black, unarmed and dead."
Finished the second season of Orange is the New Black earlier this eve and am already missing it….
"It’s hard to remember a time when more crises were jostling for space in the headline news, or when the world’s leading diplomats were engaged in diplomacy on so many issues simultaneously."
