In 1981 Timm Ulrichs had the writing THE END tattooed on his right eyelid in Frankfurt's Samy's Tattoo Studio. Since 2010, the motif documented by Foto-Hierner has been produced as a lenticular card (signed and numbered). "THE ED" is also the title of a video work which brings together 60 final images from feature films in a seven-minute anthology.
Quotes: "I tattooed my eyelid curtains with the words THE END; when they close, my eye cinema is also over." "When, in the blink of an eye, the end moment comes, when my eyes are closed for eternal sleep, the tag line will appear on the right lid: the final frame of a life formed and performed for the big screen.” 

This motif was also published in 2018 as a large lenticular picture (approx. 50 x 70 cm), edition of 24.
