Description/Remarks    Rogers appears to have reinterpreted topographic diagrams by rendering them as disconnected slabs then overlaying them, one upon the other, to create a bronze relief of abstracted contours and hollows. The geographic references continue in the sculpture's colouration: one side is patinated an intense turquoise as if suggesting the Earth's formation beneath the oceans, while the verso replicates the green and ochre of dry land.
