On the 23rd January 2020, the Doomsday clock was moved to 100 seconds to midnight. This event was the inspiration for this painting. Founded in 1945 by University of Chicago scientists who had helped develop the first atomic weapons in the Manhattan Project, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists created the Doomsday Clock two years later, using the imagery of apocalypse (midnight) and the contemporary idiom of nuclear explosion (countdown to zero) to convey threats to humanity and the planet. The decision to move (or to leave in place) the minute hand of the Doomsday Clock is made every year by the Bulletin’s Science and Security Board, in consultation with its Board of Sponsors, which includes 13 Nobel laureates. Awarded a feature on the Fine Art America website. This is an original free-hand painting carried out on a Wacom graphics tablet.
