One day is added to each week and a surprising thirteenth month complements the series. 13 numerical shapes play a game of light and dark, while concealing each other. They merge together in a colourful abstraction that makes one forget time. The calendar is used to playfully denounce the rat race of daily life and to compensate for lack of time. “Eight Days a Week, Thirteen Months a Year” indicates more time for oneself and especially for the people you care about! Part of the profits of this project will go to Tejo, an organisation dedicated to vulnerable young people between 10–20 years old. In these challenging times, it is more necessary than ever to pay attention to our younger generation to create a perspective on a sustainable future.
