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)

News: as Steven B. kindly mentioned, the voodles play superbly on an iPodTouch; Thus, from today on, Patalab introduces a direct WiFi download link(.m4v) for immediate iPodTouch voodle pleasure. Check it out... that is, if Santa blessed you with a new gadget.

and the iPod Touch touch works perfectly, in fact I'm leaving this comment from it! It's a good intimate medium for such wonderfully oneiric voodling. Happy New Year Sam.

it was indeed a touch of iPod from santa, then.

it is very comforting to know that all the short voodles now have at least one concrete base from which they can sneak further out into reality from the vast confines of the virtual.
thanks for the fine conversations and the "voodle" coinage in 2007.
a very happy new year to you too!

I am viewing the voodles on a Super 8 projector. I hope you will continue to support this format in 2008? Happy new
