Just when you were wondering what day it is, Joey Sellers has come up with a timeless way to figure it out. Sellers spoke about his Periodic Calendar to a standing room only crowd last month at Electric Works. If you missed it, freelance writer Patricia Yollin filed this helpful full-page report to the SF Chronicle that was presented in Sunday’s paper.
It was standing room only yesterday for Joey Sellers performance of his Periodic Calendar. He delighted the audience with his educational tutorial about how to navigate the calendar and his explanation of the day years.
From now until forever Periodic Calendar is the only calendar you will ever need.
If you missed out yesterday, you can stop by the store or buy one here.
Electric Works presents
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You can also participate in Ape Con Myth’s Calendar Trade-In Program by bringing in your new, yet hopelessly outdated, regular wall calendars for a $5 discount on the Periodic Calendar.
It’s almost time to turn the page on that old 2012 calendar. Get a jump start on plans for 2013 and mark your calendar.
