The development of large-scale renewable sources of energy has become the quest of our time and the only possible future. Solar energy, therefore, has emerged as one of our saviors; the sun is once again the god of life. But what will happen when the sun disappears? Should we plan for such a distant future? Can we even imagine it? What happens after the future?
The End of the Sun is a countdown system that utilizes solar energy to bring us closer to the distant future in which the sun will consume all its fuel and cool down — in about 14.4 billion years. Thus, this installation is a paradoxical countdown timer that starts at 454.118.400.000.000.000 (the number of seconds in 14.4 billion years) and utilizes solar energy to power its display and the electronic system.
