Time passes in an inking

This calendar is terrific. The ink gradually seeps through the page – filling one digit per day. It was designed by a guy named Oscar Diaz.

“Ink Calendar” make use 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. A calendar self-updated, which enhances the perception of time passing and not only signaling it.”

Calendar with stigmata attached

It’s 2009 AD – that’s Anno Domini – the year of our Lord. You probably know this, others may need constant reminding – which is why you should install this calendar in your office cubicle. It’ll no doubt be a great tool for office evangelism – or for ruling right angles/architectural drawings.

T-Shirt of the Year

Easily the best T-Shirt I’ve blogged this year – and appropriately a 2009 calendar…

“T-shirt screenprint of the 2009 calendar. A pen is attached so that the owner can fill in one box for each day that the shirt is being used. After one year the t-shirt design is finished.”

Brilliant. The geekier you are the blacker the shirt ends up.
