"If movement is a series of positions and change a series of states, time is made up of distinct parts immediately adjacent to one another. No doubt we still say that they follow one another, but in that case this succession is similar to that of the images on a cinematographic film: the film could be run off ten, a hundred, even a thousand times faster without the slightest modification in what was being shown; if its speed were increased to infinity, if the unrolling (this time, away from the apparatus) became instantaneous, the pictures would still be the same."

Speculating in situ on issues of matter and memory, whilst winter-clearing the hard disk of clutters of older footage, Sam Renseiw voodled a short and sunny, late summer memory for you.
