This work is a montage of the illustration of a recently discovered dead star whose light continues reaching us – even after its extinction – and a vintage tear off calendar sheet bearing the date 4 January 1966, incidentally the year of On Kawara’s first, “Date Painting“. Both elements relate to a measurement of time, where an action might lead to a turning point, suggested by the title’s quest.
