For the series 'Year One', Fabian Miller 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, he selected ninety-six of the images for the book. After arranging the selected works chronologically, he divided them into twelve equal sections, one for each month. He the titled each section according to the Celtic 'Coligny' calendar, one of the oldest of its kind. 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. The result is a sustained investigation into form and colour alongside the cycle of the year.
