Robbie and Kara Johnson are offering some pretty fantastic bathymetric charts of US bodies of water.
Here is a close up:
These charts are made from layers of Baltic birch and hand colored. They come framed and ready to hang. This idea “ lifts the surface of the water back like a veil, exposing the often-overlooked, under-explored, awe-inspiring world that lies below. To those familiar with the floor of the ocean or the bed of a lake, it’s a beautiful reminder of the deep channels, sharp drop-offs, and mountainous landscapes that are otherwise hidden from view. To the uninitiated, it’s wonderfully eye-opening; as though the world has suddenly taken on a fourth dimension.”
