Loher relies on RGB color system used by scientists for computer displays and other electronics. Red, green, blue also corresponds with one (or two) of four elements: red tones are associated with fire, blue with water and air, and green with the planet earth and nature. The precise movements of the performers inhabiting Videocapsule are intended to simulate cell division. A multiplication process whereby one cell divides to form two or more cells, cell division is essential for the healthy growth of all organisms and serves as a unifying feature of all life forms.
