252455615968443048 is a sculptural mirror and is a representation of a phase when the sun dies, it represents the red giant phase, and it will last about a billion years, before the Sun collapses into a white dwarf. Astronomers estimate that the sun has about 7 billion to 8 billion years (252455615968443048 seconds) left before it sputters out and dies. Humanity may be long gone by then, or perhaps we’ll have already colonized another planet.

The object degrades over time just like the sun, it gives awareness to the spectator that we have to live our lives the fullest because every second counts.
