"527 times" (Vom ende der welt)

1 Sanduhr
25 cm Höhe  x 12 cm Breite
60 Minuten Laufzeit

How many times throughout history people have been thought the "end of the world" was nigh? If we made a small research we found that our world has been ended at least 527 times until now, in order to create an opportunity to reflect us about our future and our fears, I propose to impress in a hourglass the numbers of the years in which this event was been predicted in chronological order. We really need world-ending moment to shock us out of your daily apathy? if we have the opportunity to turn the sandglass another time probably we can start to live each day as a gift.
