On Voodle-dialectics of seeing

"Memory is not an instrument for exploring the past but its theatre. It is the medium of past experience, as the present ground is the medium in which past spaces and artefacts lie interred and can be voodled forth... Thus, work on a good voodle has three steps: a musical stage when it is composed, an tectonic one when it is montaged, and a textile one when it is woven into a moving picture... Yet, a voodle real strength's lies in its improvisation. All the decisive framings should be struck in a serendipitous and left-handed flow."

Pondering on a recent statement that museums and old buildings might be too soporific environments, Sam Renseiw re-visited a local museum on a sunny Sunday afternoon.

You often have to sit and ponder museum pieces. There's a need to dream whilst viewing. Daydream, yes. I've only managed to fall asleep in a museum once! But I was dreaming of the past...

Fabulous.
