2010 Fractal Calendar

Another processing experiment. This time I coded a generative calendar where the days follow an espiral shape. Each rotation represent a year.

Well there is a big lie in the post title. This calendar is not fractal, but you can see a lot of years if you zoom. So, in some way it looks like a fractal.

The moon phase and the 24h daylight clock are suitable for Madrid (Spain). The colors are randomly taken from a palette. One color for each week or month. I added some depth by turning the colors darker in each step.

Probably I will post two or three calendar designs before the end of 2009. I researched a lot and now I have enough tools and ideas for more versions.

As usual, the bigger you print the better it looks.
