Description: 

In homage to the original 'Have a Nice Day' PHSCologram collaboration with the late artist and Doomsday Clock designer, Martyl, Ellen Sandor and (art)n created a unique VR experience that addresses more in depth factors that have lead and continue to push humanity towards midnight. Produced 15 years after the original 'Have a Nice Day,' this new work reveals heightened threats of nuclear warfare, growing tensions between nations, and environmental factors of climate change, featuring Martyl’s landscape paintings, the Doomsday Clock, and archived concerns from the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists.

In January 2017, the Doomsday Clock was moved to two and a half minutes to midnight. This year marks the 70th anniversary of the Doomsday Clock.
