click for video: Quicktime version / Flash version

“Think of what it would be to have a work conceived from outside the self, a work that would let us escape the limited perspective of the individual ego, not only to enter into selves like our own but to give speech to that which has no language, to the bird perching on the edge of the gutter, to the tree in spring and the tree in fall, to stone, to cement, to plastic…”

Trying to voodle some older footage into something of consistency, Sam Renseiw pillaged his archives, pro forma, finding traces of a sand-child, to mash-up a short visual landscape with a duo and side figures. View the move into meditation, complete with de Campos poetics, by clicking here or on the links above.
