Half Life/Full Life explores the atomic age, the Doomsday Clock, and simultaneously occurring, irrelevant cultural events. Half Life/Full Life reveals a timeline from the first atomic bomb test through each change in the Clock as it marks the estimated time until the total annihilation of humankind.

This book debuts two of Wilber H. Schilling's photographic series, Dog Run and Evidence, studies of an urban environment as it erodes and reverts back to nature—a most likely outcome of the Clock striking T-0! Industrial and post-apocalyptic, the images also suggest the catastrophic impacts of global warming that were recently added to the calculations of the Clock.

The binding is a variation on a Hedi Kyle and Claire Van Vliet structure. The binding strip is letterpress printed Tyvek. The pages are archival inkjet printed using Ultrachrome inks on Epson paper and twice coated with varnish.
