On reading ripples

click for video: Quicktime version / Flash version

"At the same time, the indentations in the brow of the wave must be considered, where it splits into two wings, one stretching toward the shore from right to left and the other from left to right, and the departure point of the destination of their divergence or convergence is this negative tip, which follows the advance of the wings but is always held back, subject to their alternate overlapping until another wave, a stronger wave, overtakes it, with the same problem of divergence-convergence, and then a wave stronger still, which resolves the knot by shattering it."

Condensing footage wavelengths into a short palindromic view, Sam Renseiw further investigates the nature of the gaze, inspired by a superb French exposure. View the cut-loop by clicking here or on the links above. (patafilm # 444, 02'37, 11.9MB, Quicktime/mov - Streaming Flash version at blip.tv)

Tide comes in tide goes out, mimicking nature's palindrome. Do you know Shoreline by Chris Welsby?

yes, indeed.
if i recall correctly, you are quite into screen ratio(s) ? this one is way off any usual ratio; i kind of always liked j.h latirgues original wide formats... but then this one is even shorter that lartigues'.

I'd say this is close to TODD-AO :)

ok. nice link. thanks!
of cource you are right about TODD-AO: the ratio is precicely 2.2:1 (640 X 300) - must yet check lartigue's picture frame ratio.

Guys, I miss the 1.33:1 screen ratio, handsome proportions ! Since digital television has gone panavision, voodling can take on this old analoque frame, and its aura of authenticity. Voodling seems to carry the desire for the primal object. For me there's a perverse justification to use the throwaway detritus, the waste of postindustrial Hollywood.

Watching this late last night inspired me to quickly whip out my digital brush and splash on some watercolour in a widescreen fashion. See the quick dip at:
