Vacuum Days was a year-long project by the artist Tim Etchells announcing a rolling programme of absurd and unsettling imaginary events responding to, reworking and distorting those of the year.

This site comprises an archive of the completed work which ran live, with new entries added daily, throughout 2011. You can still access and enjoy all of the entries through the calendar interface to the right.

More information about the project can be found here.

A limited edition publication of Vacuum Days was published in 2012.
