2012 Typographic Wall Calendar

The Typographic Wall Calendar is a project I’ve been working on since 2009.
The calendar is made of exactly the number of used keyboard keys that represent the year.

“…stunning reinterpretation of a calendar is a masterful example of how a designer can completely flip a genre signifier on its head. Geisler reimagines calendars in order to change the way we visualize time, and in turn, redefines what it means to save the date.”

Echinacea

Echinacea by Harald Geisler

I admit the flowers in this picture (Echinacea) I had forgotten in my studio.
After weeks they dried out, but they kept their color.
At one point they fell down on my couch and spread everywhere.
Since chance is an important factor in my creation process,
I decided to work with it and to experiment and try to capture this beauty.

 

I never meant to publish this picture, but after I showed my experiments to a friend he insisted that I should print them. As a tribute to the old masters of still life painting that can be found from the 16th to 18th century throughout Europe, especially in the Netherlands and Germany. My friend first thought that I had taken a picture from one of those hundred-year-old Dutch prints. He was convinced the little seeds that lay on the front glass were flies surrounding the fleeting beauty of the fading flowers. While I never intensely studied the old masters, somehow I knew their pictures. Their stillness lures to dwell in the picture. It is the meditational aspect in viewing, or the contemplative rest these pictures offer that fascinates me.

The black background and subject matter too are common ground with the “old masters still life”.
One difference I’d like to point out.
You’ll find layers, such as objects in front of each other and with it depth,
but surprisingly you’ll never find the illusion of perspective.

Details:

  • Size: 50cm x 70cm (19.7“ x 27.56“)
  • Item ships from Germany.
  • Free worldwide shipping included.

The Typographic Wall Calendar is about the act of notating time.
Representing the year written out in 2011 Keyboard Keys, it measures 100 x 70cm (27.56“ x 39.37“).

In the PDF you’ll find hi-res Images of the 2010 and 2011 version, along with an Interview by Michael McGregor (Kickstarter, NYC) and a text about the cultural relational background of calendars.

The “2011 Typographic Wall Calendar” is a continuation of the 2010 “prototype”.
The print costs of the 2011 version were raised through a Kickstarter Project.
