Attempt of postcard essay to JLG

" Experience of the aura rests on the transportation of a response common in human relationships to the relation between the inanimate or natural object and man. The person we look at, or who feels he is being looked at, looks at us in turn. To perceive the aura of an object we look at means to invest it with the ability to look at us in return."

Concerned with the presence of objects as well as an obssesive - compulsive concern with JLG oeuvre's imagery, Sam Renseiw montaged a short voodle-essay, in the spirit of Montaigne.

Today's Bonus Lumiere video features a quiet round of saddling-up in a marvellous interior.( Lum # 84, "quiet saddling up", 00'58'', 5.6MB, Quicktime/mov) As always, more of other's Lumieres at the main site.

Today's Patalab Metaphor Video repay-supplement features a architectural space, seemingly with a view, with further pataphysical inserts: a genuine Lumiere (!), and Godard / Hitchcock voice-overs.(patafilm #242, 01'12'', 5.5 MB,Quicktime/mov- [06.09.2006 post].

hi pepa,

thanks you! and in a way, you allready did.

it was some of your videos that inspired me, then.... such a fine gaze on things, spaces and situations.... i.e the fine interior madonna and things set-up in [el milagro] or, when you where cleaning the staircase, out into the street, the great view to the beach [limpieza de una escalera]... and then, if i remember, the one from the kitchen, with a view from the shelves with a funny timer, and the rotating ventilation shafts in the small balcony... [cocina y entorno].. and of course the fine interior in [mi antigua casa].

those are the videos i specially liked, because they were "simple" views on domestic things. no messages, but things as they are, looked at. then the content looks back at one, and tell complex stories that even didactic words cannot cover, because the gaze conveys so much more...

best, sam

Your art always astounds me. The phone rang as I watched this. It rang and rang and thankfully I could do nothing but watch. The phone can wait.

And love today's Patalab Metaphor Video. Magical viewing through an odd shaped keyhole.
