A few artists have approached the countdown to The End of Time. The work goes from serious doomsday gloom to satire and humor. Others have looked at other hypothetical apocalypses. For example, Richard Allenby-Pratt's Dubai: Abandoned, circa 2017, a photographic series about a fictional scenario where a cheap, viable alternative to gasoline is developed, putting the owners of the oil fields out of business, the area becoming an abandoned ruin.

|Work by Donna Isaac|
|Donna Isaac, "Mind Talk"|
In "Mind Talk", we see what looks like a pod holding a living plant. Green ribbons dangle below it, like roots reaching for fertile ground.
|Donna Isaac, "True Heart"|
"True Heart" is another enclosure with a glowing seed-like heart in its center. The exterior is covered in lace and the inside in soft-looking cloth, visible through a yonic gate.
These are very meditative works, this one would benefit greatly from subdued ambient lighting.
|Donna Isaac, "Light Being"|
Ms. Isaac's "Light Being" is about the ultimate stage of spiritual evolution and the idea that this turning over of an era or age could usher a spiritual rebirth for humanity. This sculpture hangs from the ceiling like a corn husk, with a human arm breaking out of it, like a chick breaking out of its eggshell. Like all the others, it is an image of hope.
Congratulations to the artist, Donna Isaacs and Rob Davidson and Mandy for an interesting show.
