Hours of Dark 2015
Based purely on data, this artwork represents the total hours of dark for 2015. Days of the year span clockwise from the top of the disc, represented by 365 lines. The proportion of white in each line reflects the incremental change in hours of light throughout the year. In addition, the continuous zig-zagging line shows the sun’s altitude above and below the horizon, making visible the maximum height of the sun on each day.

In response to the ongoing and devastating attacks on Ukraine, Accept & Proceed is holding an archive sale of Light Calendar screen-prints to raise funds for Kyiv Independent; a news site that continues to bring the world trusted and critical information about the facts on the ground, under the most challenging circumstances. Independent journalism in Ukraine needs our support with this difficult and unpredictable task.
From shedding light on Russian cyberattacks, to bombings and ground invasions, it is hard to predict what the days ahead will bring and what independent journalists will need to do in response. There are reports that Russian government have been blocking independent news outlets and preventing Russians from hearing news of the invasion of Ukraine. Independent journalism is needed more than ever.
The Light Calendar series are a decade long project where we plotted the daylight seen in London throughout the year. We are selling this archive of collectable screen prints in recognition that a darker world - one without access to independent journalism and unheard voices in crisis - is no place we should be in Today. Accept & Proceed will donate 100% of the proceeds from this sale to the Kyiv Independent.
Buy Light. Give Light.
