“Into the Bardo” is one of the latest pieces in a new series using x-ray film as a semi-transparent membrane, partially revealing and partially concealing what is behind it. The “Bardo" is a term from Tibetan Buddhism representing the middle zone people reach after death, between this world and the next. This is shown in the middle panel. Above them, a mysterious figure appears at a small white window. He is overlooking the people below. The scene is meant to be suggestive but not definitive.
