“This is a celebration of time and its infinite manifestations. It marries the sun and the moon to feathers, rime and starfish.” - Paul Hawken

Creators of the ECOlogical Calendar

Chris Hardman

by Kenyon Anderson

Chris Hardman, Creator and Founder

In celebration of the millennium’s turn, artist and playwright Chris Hardman created the AllTime project in 2000, an investigation into the true scope of time. Hardman initiated the ECOlogical Calendar the following year after recognizing the limitations of the traditional Gregorian calendar. Chris Hardman founded Antenna Theater in 1980 to experiment with the essential dynamics of sound, sculpture, and live performance. He is best known for his experimental use of portable audio technology, and his work has been acclaimed by critics in the United States and many other countries. Antenna is located at Fort Cronkhite in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, a national park located in San Francisco, Marin, and San Mateo counties. Antenna Audio, also founded by Hardman and sold in 1998, produces audio-guided tours for museum exhibitions and historic sites worldwide. Antenna Theater continues to produce audio tours for the Golden Gate National Recreation Area as a Partner in the Park.

Hardman’s ECOtime may be heard on Living on Earth, broadcast by Public Radio International, and on Green 960 AM in the San Francisco Bay Area.
