No matter what happens in life, time keeps marching on. Artist Gideon Dagan captured that concept perfectly with this ode to modern timekeeping disguised as a clock. Part of the highly respected Museum of Modern Art product collection, this Perpetual Calendar tracks the days, weeks, months, and years in a new and exciting way. The original concept dates back to 1998 but this shrunken down version was introduced to great fanfare in 2008 and modern art enthusiasts have been crowing ever since.
A far cry from standard square calendars adorned with puppy pictures or cat quotes, this piece is visually stunning and incredibly interesting. The calendar perches on any flat surface (it can also be mounted on the wall) and the user moves the magnetic balls to mark the current date and month. The sleek design will make a welcome addition to a classroom, office, den, loft, or any room with space for a contemporary work of art – the piece’s practicality is just a bonus. It’s bold, it’s original, and it’s way more fun than a digital display that ticks on completely unnoticed. Give something the gift of time and art in one exciting package – they’ll thank you for years to come.
- To use, simply insert the stand to place the calendar on a desk and move the magnetic balls manually to mark the date and month
