The relation between video and audio in the work «AV Diaries» is crucial. It can be interpreted, apart from the obvious implication inside the plane mother-son, which insists on Freudian mechanisms of theoretical editing, as a Cartesian motivation of dichotomy body-spirit. From this, I’d say a more sensible theoretical vertical, we separate the visual problem of the body’s representation, initiated by the late feeling of guilt in its gestures (stated in audio), from audio subject less principle, which is a typical cognitive category, like objection to conscious. However such audio-video Cartesian-ship is good to be taken only as a literary approach, since it is directly connected to the entities important to understand «AV Diaries», but it also initiates analysis of two initial categories of the work, and those are the body of the feeling of guilt, and cognition of the feeling of guilt, both in the domain of a concrete personality, and the domain of social charge, shaped into a concrete personality.
