Ink Calendar

Ink Calendar makes use of the timed pace of the ink spreading on the paper to indicate time. The ink is absorbed slowly, and the numbers in the calendar are “printed” daily. Once a day, they are filled with ink until the end of the month. The calendar enhances the perception of time passing in an analogue way. The aim is to address our senses, rather than the logical and conscious brain. The ink colours are based on a spectrum that relates to a “colour temperature scale”, each month having a colour related to our perception of the weather on that month. The colours range from dark blue in December to three shades of green inSpring, or orange and red in the Summer.
