Riveting bifurcated repetitions

click for: Qicktime version / Flash version

" I'm astounded whenever I finish something. Astounded and distressed. My perfectionistic instinct should inhibit me from finishing; it should inhibit me from even beginning. But I get distracted and start filming something. What I achieve is not the product of an act of will but of my will's surrender. I begin because I don't have the strength to think; I finish because I don't have the strength to quit. These videos are my cowardice. " (text 152)

"I never kept sheep," exults Sam Renseiw, "but it's as if I'd done so. My soul is like a shepherd. It knows wind and sun, walking hand in hand with the seasons, observing, and following along..." Riveted by the mesmerising, mechanic moves of three women fingering card-boards, Sam, the coward, surrenders his gaze to yet another capture of repetitive footage.
