Bardo (from the Tibetan བར་དོ་intermediate state, in-between state, transitional state) is the constant moment in between past and future, the now, it is the transforming present, the change from one state into another, the lasting moment, the flow of nowness. Sounds of  cymbals travel trough the copper tubes and resonate in all directions of the passageway – being difficult to locate. This installation was located at the underground area of the former crematory at Südstern in Berlin and was part of the exhibition Heptahedral, 2016.
