Mar 15, 2010: Capillary Calendar

Not numbering the varicose veins on Granny's leg, a self coloring paper calendar that uses capillary action of paper and ink.



Quote:
Ink Calendar make 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. One a day, they are filled with ink until the end of the month. The calendar enhances the perception of time passing and not only signaling it. The aim of the project is to address our senses, rather than the logical and conscious brain.

The ink colors are based on a spectrum, which relate to a “color temperature scale”, each month having a color related to our perception of the weather on that month. The colors range from dark blue in December to three shades of green in spring or orange and red in the summer.
That's cool... or warm, depending on the month.

that is very neat - wouldn't want the mess I would make of it though.

I wonder if that's because it doesn't really work, and the pace gets further and further off as time passes? So many things would affect the speed of it...

you probably have to maintain a certain humidity....and I expect altitude would matter as well...
