“Structures of Nature” is an audiovisual journey through the inner worlds of experiences in the form of a three-part interaction between four narrators, twelve violoncellos, emergent sound events, and rhythmicized synaesthetic video sequences. A symbiosis of visual processes as well as natural and artificial sounds created from human speech and string instruments.

Images, music, speech, and sounds are commensurate compositional elements that lead the viewer through various microscopic and macroscopic structures of nature in a literal and transcendent sense, making them sensuous to the eye and ear.

“Structures of Nature” shows different facets of the cosmos like chemical creations, sociological and physical principles of form, and also mathematical formulas as symbols for uncompromising order or one´s radical suicide for the benefit of the community. The work includes creation and destruction, as well as insect and natural sounds generated from human speech, symbolizing the expression of a swarm-like emergence, the inner conflict beyond time and space in the form of a letter written in futility or even the direct poetry of physical perception.
