On the Eve of the Rapture, opens with a formidable excerpt of a doomsday evangelist. “You know we are at that point now where we are ready to take off. Judgement Day is May 21, ah… well if I feel like it… no if I… well whatever.”
Taken in time laps over a period of an hour and a half, On the Eve of the Rapture is a one minute (time specific) response, at 12:00pm May 11, 2011. On this occasion, there was no earthquake or beginning of the end. There was however, an amazing moon.
