CALENDAR PROJECT: FEBRUARY 2016 WALLPAPER DESIGN

Berny Tan x Calendar Project (Geneve Ong)

A contribution to the Calendar Project, which in its second year invites guest artists to create monthly designs for desktop and phone wallpapers. Since 2016 is a leap year, this hand-embroidered design for the February wallpaper took inspiration from a graph of leap year shifting patterns c. 1750 – 2250 C.E.  I created a simple formula to approximate the pattern, and marked the gaps between the warp and weft of the muslin where the french knots (representing one year each) would be stitched.
