On dreaming while awake

click for video: Quicktime / .m4v direct version for iPodTouch

"As a voodler, you could say that I am dreaming while I am awake, and every day I can continue with yesterday's dream. Because it is a dream, there are so many contradictions, and I have to adjust them to make the voodles work. But in principle, the original dream does not change. It's like a time machine. I can remember everything. I can feel the wind. I can smell the spaces. I even remember the music, though it is mostly sampled from other's re-mixes. Very actually. Very vividly."

Having shown nothing for a while, Sam Renseiw just ran his fingertips along the edge of some gilded human-shaped figure footage-left-over, sending the music deep enough into viewers hearts so as to undergo a kind of simultaneous spatial shift. It's like giving birth to a kind of shared state, that can be viewed by clicking here or on the links above. (patafilm # 552, 02'28'', 15.2Mb, Quicktime/mov - other versions at

Today's Bonus Lumiere video features an additional corridor, a sort of condensed spatial lapse. (Lum # 70 "the freudian slip" 01'00'', 5.8MB, Quicktime/mov)
