In Vessels (160935 km) various kinds of continuous flows of different speeds, densities, and textures, are perplexed. The work was inspired by a fusion of two ideas of continuous flows that define us: imagining blood cells running through vessels in a body, as well as a vehicle driving on the highway. Hence, the title relates to both concepts, it resembles a geographical road sign, but also specifies average length of blood vessels in an adult human body. The work was commissioned by Belgian harpist, Stef Van Vynckt during 2020.
