"By disclosing and making obvious the manipulative contrivances and "fictive" qualities of the medium, the viewer is alienated from any passive acceptance and enjoyment of the voodle as mere "entertainment". Instead, the viewer is gently ordained into a critical, analytical frame of mind that serves to disabuse him/her of the notion what he/she is watching is necessarily an inviolable, self-contained narrative... Naturalistic voodles purport to depict life precisely as it appears, albeit in a new light, so one can consider things with closer pataphysical subjectivity, robbed of their conventional outward appearance."

Juxtaposing a broader view on artful frame-works with the Hatter's display in Hans Christian Andersen's favourite shop (Founded 1857 and still existing), Sam Renseiw montaged forth a speculative voodle.
