Ink calendar by 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.
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 whether on that month. The colors
 range from dark blue in December to, three shades of green
 in spring or oranges, red in the summer.
