Calendar, Hammer / Galerie de multiples, Paris / 2OO6 AND 2O15
This calendar claims to explain 12 existential phenomena (for example, "Life as a movie") by using technical-scientific modes of representation, such as the cross-section, the scan, the UV video, etc. Sometimes these explanations are based on "scientific truths", sometimes they are invented. Each page plays on a stark contrast between a poetic statement (the title) and its dryly technical representation, and vice versa. A color code replaces the days of the week and changes every month so that the calendar lasts four years, namely 2OO7-1O. A hammer is used to hang the calendar and, following the logic of "Understand what you love", it displays the undulation its handle is subjected to at the moment of impact.
