The ‘Doomsday Clock’ represents the likelihood of a man-made global catastrophe, with the hypothetical end as "midnight". In January 2018 the clock was adjusted to two minutes to midnight, the closest it has been since beginning in 1947, tied with 1953 when the U.S. and the Soviet Union began testing hydrogen bombs.
‘The End’ is a collection of predicted end dates for global catastrophe combining secular, scientific and fantastical predictions. In total 360 pages record endings from 635BC to the current hypothesis of the ‘Big Rip’ when everything will end in 22 billion years.
Combined together into a book and 15minute film ‘The End’ references the conclusion of a story with dates arranged chronologically from end to end.
