The whole of something

The moment or duration of total obscuration of the sun or moon during an eclipse

“Absolute: Totality”, Oil paint on panel. 40” x40”. 12.16.17.

On August 21, 2017 a collective population of millions stopped what they were doing and made their way outside. There was no national holiday to celebrate, no overly-hyped sports event, and no national tragedy to honor.

The last time an eclipse passed through the entire width of the country was 99 yrs ago. For the hours leading up to this 160 seconds, our society lived outside. We took notice of the sky.
