Color Wheel is a series in which we identify a trending color in art, and post a daily image that illustrates its popularity. This week’s color is black.
Disorganized types should beware of this to-do calendar; it’s art, and therefore requires special treatment.
First, you must take the 368-page thick pad out of the box, which is no easy task because there is a “black ribbon attached to the bottom of the inside to assist the user in removing the pad.” So take a minute to do that, then carefully tear off one sheet of paper to write out your to-do’s. Or you keep all the sheets together—but that means you’re stuck with a to-do list inside a box to tow around with you, so good luck with that.
When you’ve moved on to a new day, you’re given the option of making sure the “box lid goes under the box base and can be used to store completed calendar days.” So many uses for this box! When, and if you make it through 365 days, “the entire package can be shelved for archiving purposes.” That is because this is no ordinary to-do boxlet, it is art, and deserves a shelf. Yes, a keepsake for all your missed appointments, deadlines, and meetings. In that case, maybe I could like it: a black box for dreams deferred.
