Autonomy of the digital signal-processing systems, pictures of the artificial gaze and the nature evolving from each other about the human – or its absence – accessible through and within them appear in the sequence. We are progressing and processing within and between bardos. We hear the machine-like, non-sensical speach of voice synthetizers, their feedback into a sign not recognizing itself. Liberation in a space void of subject. Accompanied by the accents of the voice-synthesizers reading in different languages the following two poems’ abstract sounds are heard:
“O now, when the Bardo of the Moment of Death upon me is dawning!
Abandoning attraction and craving, and weakness for all [worldly things],
May I be undistracted in the space of the bright [enlightening] teachings,
May I [be able to] transfuse myself into the heavenly space of the Unborn:
The hour hath come to part with this body composed of flesh and blood; May I know the body to be impermanent and illusory.“
“I am perishing, I am perishing…
Am I bearing or crapping now?”

Nature and human existence within it in particular, always was a substantial source and a focal point of my works. Thus I am seeking to explore possible variations in the zone between nothing and the world structured by concepts and forms: transitions by means of which all the shapeless and senseless takes form and necessarily emits itself for the sensation and comprehension of human experience. For something doesn’t paying more consideration to the meaning of a phenomenon than to its material presence. For something constantly searching for new interpretations, so to reconfigure what once seemed and seems to be familiar.
