Once again the weekend has slipped away from our grasp and we’re back where we started. Monday has begun in earnest and we’re left wondering where exactly that long awaited for weekend went? Well as there are no real answers to that question, and unfortunately we can’t freeze time, we might as well watch the days meander along in style.

This Calendar design uses a bottle of ink to to help keep track of exactly where the days went. Each month has its own pre-measured bottle of ink to make sure it lasts the duration (as you can imagine, February’s bottle would have to be smaller than October’s). The paper wick is left in the ink as the ink slowly diffuses its way through the dates, completing each day on a 24hr basis. A ‘timely’ work of art by Spanish designer Diaz Oscar, this calendar is certainly a greener way to watch the days go by. Diaz says:

“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.”

Hopefully the slow, purposeful diffusion of the ink will make the days seem longer – well, at least at the weekends anyway.
