Miss Fidget’s 2014 calendar is now available for download. This calendar, born for y2k, endures as an interactive and collaborative piece of performance art between the artist and viewer. The calendar incorporates re-appropriated found imagery and calendar features like federal and other holiday, birthdays, unusual commemorations, and astrological information with Miss Fidget’s unique world view.
This work has always been approached as a functional fine art piece. It has never been intended for sale or as a professional caliber corporate communication and can be NSFW. It uses unlicensed images and snap shots with no known model release. August ALWAYS has a naked lady that might be racy. Observances include Shemp Howard’s birthday and Lynyrd Skynyrdt’s plane crash. There’s often a maudlin essay that speaks vaguely of tribulations then slips into a chipper “Tempus Fugit! ”
Long time users may have rituals involving it’s use, like not looking ahead and letting each month’s art and theme be a surprise. Many make it the primary day keeper of their homes or carry it as their daily planner. Some people have lived with this calendar continually for more than 10 years.
For 10+ years the calendar was printed on desktop printers, often on fine printer’s papers, and hand assembled. As the quantity has increased so has the need for speed and 2013 was the first foray into professional output.
As usual, the calendar was completely conceived, designed, laid out, researched, fact checked, proofed, and readied for production in a blind blur between Halloween and Thanksgiving – well before the finishing of the space suit for the Mummer’s parade. That hyper rush may explain the essays’s tone.
