Capillary Calendar

This little gem of an idea was shared to me via Google Reader by my friend Cat of Pizza Diavola. Spanish designer Oscar Diaz took the usually boring concept of a calendar and came up with a way to really make it pop.
Through the power of capillary action (for you laypeople, what allows paper towels to soak up water), Diaz has created a calendar which slowly sucks up paint as the days in a month go by. The result? One hell of a calendar:

The full calendar has colors which “relate to a “color temperature scale”, each month having a color related to our perception of the weather on that month. The colors range from dark blue in December to three shades of green in spring or orange and red in the summer.”
It is apparently on display until October 11th at the Circulo de Bellas Artas in Madrid.
