Capillaries Capillaries is an audiovisual composition based on a non-hierarchical and bi-directional relationship between sound and image in real-time. The piece does not represent a visualization of music or sonification of an image but rather a tangle of audiovisual interactions.

The work explores the idea of an audiovisual time object where shape, time and sound interact with one another. The main focus of the piece are the structures that emerge from the force field that pulls such objects towards two opposite extremes—tidy pre-composed order or generative chaos. The situation reflects the id-ego-superego model, which represents the conceptual background. Just as the ego is established in between the two groups of conflicting forces that constitute, distort, constrain or disperse our subjectivity, so too is the material of Capillaries Capillaries. Throughout the piece we observe the behavior of one and the same material from different perspectives.
