Frese's previous work, including Pacha Mama, places a distinct focus on the end of time, and her latest contribution to the Lafayette art scene is no exception. Rather than depicting the traditional notion of end of the world, Apocalypse Now will emphasize the closing of one cultural cycle and the begining of a new one through collaboration of 1980s-era gelatin-sliver images as well as Frese's signature mixed-media photo collages.

"The winter solstice on December 21, 2012 marks the end time of the "long count" Mayan calendar and the beginning of new 5,000 year cycle believed by the Mayans to be the dawning of a new era," says Frese in a release about the event.
