At the beginning of the year 377 cardboard pieces, one for each day and one for each month, are stacked on one vertical stick: december 31st lays on the bottom, january 1st on top. Each day one card is removed from the stick and turned over to be stacked on a second stick, where the stack of passed days grows continously. Time is passing by... its visible height declines on one side and it increase on the other side. "Le calendrier" is 1.20 meter high, its cardboards have been individually printed with wooden letters. It is both and object of daily use, a time measurement device, architectural object and sculpture.
