Ink Calendar


By Spanish designer Oscar Diaz who writes, "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. One a day fills with ink until the end of the month. 


The calendar enhances the perception of time passing, not just signaling it. The aim of the project is to address the senses, rather than the logical and conscious brain.


The ink colors are based on a spectrum which relates to a 'color temperature scale,' each month having a color related to our perception of the weather of that month. 


"The colors range from dark blue in December to three shades of green in spring or orange and red in the summer."
