Ink Calendar by Oscar Diaz

This is a really neat concept by artist Oscar Diaz that I spotted on Dezeen. I'm not sure about the practicality, but it's fun to look at.

About the project: "The calendar uses the capillary action of ink spreading across paper to display the date. Each month, a bottle of coloured ink spreads across a sheet of paper embossed with numbers, colouring them in as it goes. 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, 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.

Ink Calendar is shown as part of SUEÑOS DE UN GRIFO.
Diseño con alma de agua at the Círculo de Bellas Artes in Madrid."

  1. Dear Rachel,

    I think we are meant to be friends. We have blogged about some of the same things like this calendar!

    Love it! (but you're way cooler than me, because you always blog things before I do. I'm always late in the game discovering cool things like this calendar)
