Hours of Dark 2016
Reducing light data down to its purest possible form, the total area of the black ring equates to total hours of dark in 2016. The area of the white hole in the centre equals total hours of light. The ring is split into 366 segments, each representing a day. In the winter, the segments are larger, conveying the increasing length of darkness, while in the summer, smaller segments convey the shortening summer nights.

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.
