On Kawara Time Machine, 2011

Is a Internet work in progress project. A javascript counter automates the On Kawara time based works from the beginning of "Date paintings" in January 4, 1966, to the actual date checked in the operating system clock.

The CSS code takes the look of the paintings, using white futura bold typography on black background.

The Project will be completed at the date of the death of On Kawara, including a new variable in the code, the counter will count from the origin of "Date paintings" to the date of his dead.
