The seven-panel Day After Day (2010) was made during the Obama administration, when oil from a damaged BP rig was gushing into the Gulf of Mexico, day after day. The lyric is from Stephen Sondheim’s “Not a Day Goes By,” from the musical Merrily We Roll Along. In this moment, it seems also to speak to inescapable waiting.
