Ink Calendar by Oscar Diaz

As cool as their designs can be, wall calendars are rarely up to the challenge of fitting in with well-designed interior spaces – usually they are more eyesore than wall art. The dates in this design, however, are automatically populated as ink crawls organically along the surface of what amounts to a perpetual wall calendar – you can literally watch time go by.


This ingenious-but-simple low-tech solution by Oscar Diaz uses the natural capillary action of liquid to move ink along the imprinted surface, slowly filling in the blank white calendar day-by-day for an entire month. New months can be done in different seasonal colors with a blank embossed slate to start with each time, though temperatures call for different ink mixtures depending upon specific climactic conditions (such as temperature and humidity).
