Seven Luminaries 2020 Gift Set (calendar, tote bag, pin, washi tape and pencil)

Product Description **Seven Luminaries 2020 Lucky Bag/ Gift Set** “Somehow everything comes with an expiry date. Swordfish expires. Meat sauce expires. Even cling-film expires. Is there anything in the world which doesn't?” --- Chungking Express **We all know the answer is no.** Things fade out from memory, even memory cannot prevent itself from expiring Human are oblivious creatures, but each of us has our own way to preserve the experience we treasure the most in life. **“If memories could be canned, would they also have expiry dates? If so, I hope they last for centuries.”** The Voice of the Ordinary launches this memory project to renew our experience of time in the everyday life: We will distribute this can that will never expire on the train to 2020. In the 19th century, the expansion of the railway network led to the standardization of time around the world. By the 21st century, our daily life is structured around the objective time informed by surrounding electronic devices. Calendar is merely a tool to remind us of our schedule—it comes as no surprise that our lived experience evaporates into oblivion, as we have all become numb to the passage of time. By tearing down a page from a calendar, we have already forgotten the existence of that page. On this train to 2020 you will be offered a planetary worldview: Our Seven Luminaries calendar retains the form of a traditional almanac, but refuses to fixate any date nor make any forecast. You will fill the dates in the way you want. You will decide how your days are spent without the need to pay attention to what is auspicious and what not. You will discover hidden messages in the scratchable area—a reminder to the uncertainty and spontaneity in life. In 2020, our times will never be the same. **Two weeks one planet** Every two weeks, you will complete a journey and collect a card from the calendar. With 14 cards you can transform the words you have written into a planet. Your memory is a universe, and the discourse of the most ordinary can constellate a star. **In 2020, along with the seven luminaries, explore the extraordinary out of the ordinary. ** **Use memory to embrace oblivion, let forgetting be a way of remembering. ** **◑ The gift/ lucky bag includes:** Sun ㊐ “When Day Goes, Comes Month”: A traveler's tote bag /1 Moon ㊊ 2020.Memory Planet portable organizer /1 Fire (Mars) ㊋ Colours of eyes laser silver card /1 Water (Mercury) ㊌ The Mortal Voice Writable washi tape /1 Wood (Jupiter) ㊍ The Mortal Voice Blackwood pencil /1 Metal (Venus) ㊎ Memory Universe enamel pin in a tin can /1 soil (Saturn) ㊏ More than space letter writing set /1 ✦ “Galaxy Daily”: a guide to your Memory Planet organizer /1 ✦ Packaging: silver foil-stamped, hand-sewn envelope in sulfite paper /1 ✦ *Personalized package for gift idea ◐ Item details -Dimensions: 24.5cm x14cm x 1.6cm two-sided printing -Number of page: 42P -Paper type: black cardstock (cover and back), 250gsm lightweight paper (inner pages) -Techniques: spot colour printing, silver hot stamping, black-and-white design magnetic stand, rope braiding, paper tearing, scratch-off printing -Material: paper, metal, 3mm silver-grey 3-strand rope, wood -Place of Origin: Hong Kong The back stand is composed of virgin fibre paper to maximize durability. In addition to being a hanging calendar in two ways (hangar or rope), the magnetic base provides a third possibility as a desk calendar with a triangle folding. Our paper design will help you construct a time-space with your own writing. Our portable seven luminaries calendar is unbound by day, week or month. You are free to record the fleeting moments and order the happenings in this floating word according to your choice. We hope that on this murky planet, we can still find each other by following our own path through the smog. Inherited from ancient astronomy, the seven luminaries calendar orders the days of the week by seven celestial objects: ㊐ the Sun, ㊊ Moon, ㊋ fire (Mars), ㊌ water (Mercury), ㊍ wood (Jupiter), ㊎ metal (Venus) and ㊏soil (Saturn). Each sheet can be divided into two parts: ◓The upper part stands as an individual poster; ◒the lower part consists of a scratch-off surprise and instructions for origami. With 14 cards you can transform the words you have written into a planet. **Two weeks one planet** **㊕ The Lucky Bag / Gift Set is a limited edition, while stocks last.** ◑ Brand Story ◐ **Chinese meaning of ProFanum is “Dictated by The ordinary.”** We believe the voice of the ordinary leads to creativity. We have to seek greatness from the smallest, and each design should be its own reflection of life and society. Therefore, all these design are to point out even the smallest voice of justice can win applauses of a whole mute universe. The connection of space and mythology is a metaphor of sublime humanity that will always turn into fireworks of great compassion in even the worst of time.
