Overview

There is only one definitive end currently foreseeable, the one apocalypse scenario which is certain to occur. In around two billion years it will be so hot on Earth that all life will cease to exist, and in four and a half billion years the sun will swell into a Red Giant and burn out. This particular fate is evoked by a dramatic light installation consisting of 630 light bulbs. Over time viewers can experience the process of expansion and burning out on a sensory level.

Goals

Create a sensory, spatial experience as part of a permanent exhibition about the Apocalypse.
