Nacionalinė dailės galerija, Vilnius
"Barometer" is a new, spatial tone poem that deals with language as pressure system,
departing from the tirade of subjectivity and fallacies that marked the original libretto text for Bad Weather.
Created for the courtyard and stairwell of the National Art Gallery, it is interested in questioning visibility and fluidity in traces, remains, and absence.

as part of Bad Weather at the Museum
The sequence of events is set out as a palindrome and thus allows experiencing the same content in both directions: either starting with the "Navigations" in the Main Hall, then ascending the staircase with the "Barometer" and arriving at the presentation of the vinyl record, or vice versa - starting with LP launch and then descending with the "Barometer" into the Main Hall navigated by Arturas Bumšteinas.
