Writing on the artwork｜
The fabricated, the inauthentic, the theatrical have displaced the natural the genuine and the spontaneous.
Reality has been converted into the image and stagecraft.
We live in a world when fantasy is more real than reality.
Their illusions so vivid, so persuasive, so realistic that they can live in them.
Yeat we dear not become disillusioned because our illusions are a very house which we live.
Fragments of books Daniel J. Boorstin '' The Image'' and ''America: The Farewell Tour”.
In 2020 famous Doomsday clock is closer than ever before in history to midnight. It is 100 seconds to midnight (midnight means apocalypse) Doomsday Clock is made every year by the Bulletin’s Science and Security Board in which includes 13 Nobel laureates. The Clock has become a universally recognized indicator of the world’s vulnerability to catastrophe from nuclear weapons, climate change, and disruptive technologies in other domains.
Humanity continues to face two simultaneous existential dangers—nuclear war and climate change.
Artwork reflects the reality that we create in it. Like earth on which we as a species directly effect. The inscription on the image sums up the current time on the "doomsday clock". The doomsday clock symbolizes the probability of a man-made global catastrophe. Maintained since 1947 by the members of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, The Clock is a metaphor for threats to humanity from unchecked scientific and technical advances. The Clock show how close the world is to a global catastrophe as a number of "minutes" to midnight. The factors influencing the Clock are nuclear risk and climate change.
