Tables can be thought of as concrete objects, or as abstract lists.
'Kandinsky's table' conflates the two meanings of the word; combining the drawn table with a visual "list" (or table) of colours which Kandinsky theorised as represented by geometric forms.
These colours - portrayed in the upper section as though on an artist's palette - are mapped (or listed) to their respective solid forms in the lower section by the small graph paper images above them. There is a deliberate visual ambiguity between the physical location of the crosses in the graphs and the colours used to depict them.
