This calendar’s concept is based on memory and loss. In many cultures and religions around the world, life and death is not seen as a beginning or an end, but more of a path, or journey within our existence. Even scientists today believe we never die – to understand this we need to change in the way we view our existence.
Life is energy in movement, which passes from one object to the next. It moves through all the elements: earth, air, water, fire and spirit. When our bodies die, we return to the earth, this process has energy, like the earth and sun gives to a flower: it is a continuum of energy which is everlasting, eternal.
This calendar contains images, which are designed to trigger memories and thoughts of our own personal journeys, including friends and family, they are subtle and unobtrusive to help us heal and inspire positivity. Each page also contains a haiku poem. The poems chosen deal with death in one way or another,
some with regret, others with joy, but most see it as part of our journey.
The calendar was created with the idea of giving as a gift to someone, who has lost someone through death. Its minimalist design and early photographic images are used to trigger memories of the past, each page has a shape as its theme, which represents everlasting energy and also each Monday in the month.
