Same shit, different day

Star book

2009

The book's cover is binary code with the letters SSDD, as everything going on around us may as well be in code, for all the notice we take of it. The book is in star book format, with seemingly no beginning or end to the week - it just keeps going around. When fully opened, the outer layer displays the drudgery of everyday life with a page for each day of the week. The pockets around the book contain the same items each day, as every day is the same. Inside the book, behind the outer layer, are exciting, colourful pieces of paper and photos. They are hard to see, as we can get so caught up in the sameness of each day that we forget the things that mean something to us and make us happy.
