For the series Year One (2005–06), he produced one work every day over the course of a year. Discoveries made with each piece informed the next. At the end of the year, the artist selected ninety-six of the images for publication in the form of a book. After arranging the selected works chronologically, he divided them into twelve equal sections, one for each month. He then titled each section according to the Celtic ‘Coligny’ calendar, one of the oldest of its kind. For example, the autumnal Samonios, meaning ‘seed-fall’, is named after the first month of the Celtic year; Elembiuos, which includes images of a full moon, bears the name of one of the summer months. Refining his selection still further, Fabian Miller chose one work to represent each month, presenting his choices in twelve separate drawers of a purpose-built walnut display cabinet.
