Inspired by artists such as Robert Smithson, Sol LeWitt and Heinz Mack along with ancient Greek geometers and NASA photographers, Badger continues his exploration of abstraction and earthworks. Using the moon as his touchstone, this body of work also advances Badger’s interest in objective maps with subjective associations as well as the ambiguous relationship between reflections and projections.

Perpetual Lunar Calendar

Perpetual Lunar Calendar

Get your very own print of Athanasius Kircher’s perpetual lunar calendar from Rendij Studio.

Athanasius Kircher was a philosopher and mystic of the 17th century. In his perpetual lunar calendar showing the phases of the moon, Kircher beautifully illustrates the unity of mathematics and mysticism. By using the growth properties of the arithmetical spiral, he makes it possible to read the the hour of moonrise in each successive phase.

You may remember how quickly Alec Thibodeau’s lunar calendar sold out last year. He’s done another intricate letterpress calendar for 2011 and it is now available for pre-order.

The Full Cold Moon

The Full Cold Moon; or the Full Long Nights Moon – December During this month the winter cold fastens its grip, and nights are at their longest and darkest. It is also sometimes called the Moon before Yule. The term Long Night Moon is a doubly appropriate name because the midwinter night is indeed long, and because the Moon is above the horizon for a long time. The midwinter full Moon has a high trajectory across the sky because it is opposite a low Sun.

From The Farmers Almanac Full Moon Names and Their Meanings. This year, the full moon falls on the winter solstice.

I managed to miss out on Tiny Showcase’s 2010 glow-in-the-dark calendar this year, featuring the artwork of Alec Thibodeau. Providence locals may be in luck, however, and might still be able to nab a copy at Craftland.
