" to look for ways to ask the question, wondering and looking for where... The question is not-yet-formed. It hovers at the racetracks, stadiums, theaters, and all public places, dripping beneath the stars."

Still slightly overwhelmed by gazing into the avarice, Sam Renseiw voodled seemingly absurd natural moves into a meditative, fixed piece of cognitive experience. Click here to view or on the links above. (patafilm # 494,03'04'',19.4MB, Quicktime/mov - direct streaming for Pc at

I won't pretend I know what's happening here, but I nevertheless LOVE this video. The framing, the simple movement, a scene I wish I was in. All of it. Very powerful.

A true testament to the power of video and vision. Sometimes we have no idea what the other is saying, but it just doesn't matter.

I also have a deep love for this particular lumiere video. Churches are some of the most loaded imagery in my life, and the giant welcome sign reflects something I've been struggling with lately (super religious family, myself the opposite).

You sure did make my morning!

thank you B, for your kind comments!

the video is a short sequense of an exercise for 4 choreografy students, quickly noting moves on paper from a dance performace video, featuring a dancer making those strange contortions, while explaining - in german - about her relationship to nature. from a workshop i currently run.

the church video is funny indeed. i only noticed afterwards, that two of the visitors spend exactely 19,6 seconds going in and coming out. !

re. lumiere video:. andreas H' fine piece "sink with water" is sublime !
so simple, with fantastic framing and a great, dynamic composition; delicate suspence...yet no denouement.
one of the best minimalistic pieces of video i have seen, to my liking.
