Periodic Calendar

Electric Works presents
Periodic Calendar
Saturday, January 19, 2-3 PM

Electric Works is pleased to present the Periodic Calendar, a new breakthrough in temporal technology, created by Joey Sellers and conceptual art think tank Ape Con Myth.

Modeled on the periodic table of elements, the Periodic Calendar reveals the full landscape of possible days by categorizing years based on their first day of the week. In this new system, the days of the month shatter into the isotopes of multiple elements, creating a perpetual calendar capable of exploring past, present and future dates as never before.

Ape Con Myth’s work revolves around the search for new possibilities within reality by rewiring the abstract structures governing it and for five years has produced variations on the traditional wall calendar in an effort to change the way the world thinks about and experiences time.

Please join us on Saturday, January 19th from 2-3 PM to get a glimpse of the future with the creator of the Periodic Calendar. Sellers will give a short talk about what Type of Year 2013 will be and help the curious find their Birth Elements.

You can also participate in Ape Con Myth’s Calendar Trade-In Program by bringing in your new, yet hopelessly outdated, regular wall calendars for a $5 discount on the Periodic Calendar.

STORE HOURS:
Monday—Saturday 11-5

Mindanao Jungle

Step into the gallery and you step into the magnificence of David Tomb’s Mindanao jungle. With luminous and colorful paper assemblages Tomb conveys the spatial depth of Mindanao and the grand birds that live there. A 12-foot high 15-foot wide wall piece of a life size Philippine Eagle nest site commands the gallery.

With this exhibition and with his Jeepney Projects Worldwide, Tomb brings attention to the challenges and tensions these grand birds face in order to survive and share a sustainable future with an ever-growing Filipino population.
