Mining museum Pernik, Sofia, Bulgaria

4 way crossing in the mining tunnels, 2 dead ends, 3 different sound sources, a story “about getting lost in an empty place and finding it familiar and new same time, a place where time stops”, speakers, rotation motor, mirrors, reflecting materials, mining wagons, coal and lights.

We can never fully understand or know time. We can not enjoy the true present, as it is an instant of zero duration. Actually we could think that there are only two frames of time: the past (which could be felt in the mine) and the present. Mostly time moves slowly and increasingly and it is only noticed when we realised that something has changed.
