On idle details and protrusions

“ Libraries are not built of stone; all is built on sand, but we must build libraries as if the sand were stone, then they will grow...and what is more important in a library than anything else - than everything else - is the fact that it exists... I cannot walk through the library in the solitude of the day without thinking that the library pleases us because it accentuates idle details, just as our memory does; Thus, voodling from inside a library is nothing more than a guided dream, creating a momentary garden: a blurred, visual aide-memoire ”

Visiting the local library, Sam Renseiw focused on an protruding, seemingly idle detail on the back wall, oozing with a quiet, powerful poetic presence. View the palindromic loop by clicking here or on the links above. (patafilm # 577,02'33'', 13.4MB, Quicktime/mov - other versions at

Today's Bonus Lumiere video features the manufacture of an object, suddenly protruding from a heated, plastic surface. ( Lum # 94 "appearance of moulded object", 00'58'', 5.8MB, Quicktime/mov)

Today's Patalab Metaphor video re-play supplement features another art work, viewed flatly, ending as a sort of running fault. (patafilm # 119, 01'00'',[19.03.2006 post], 2.4 MB, Quicktime/mov)

I love when I wake up Saturday morning, my time, and find a new video. It's such a nice way to start a potentially lazy weekend (or at least a leisurely morning).

The bonus video is very cool, although a bonus audio looks as if it might have been intriguing, to hear the sounds that machine makes.

thanks for using my song in the cool main feature.
