On the intangible of local in global

"The ecological absorption of the voodle and the obsolescence of the voodler precipitate the cultural dissolution of the videographic eye. A postvideographic culture has no need for a witness, a transcendent and discriminating eye, to testify to the significance of events by organizing and fixing them according to a chronological code of before and after. With postvideography there is no longer a point of view, but visual contexts; no longer an eye, but a continuous contextually interactive, visually educative process in which biological eyes reflexively commune with the fragments and possibilities of their cultures."

Recording a short moment of early spring, Sam Renseiw speculated on the nature of the correlation between sound and vision while alternating between chairs and the view to a peculiar tower in an exquisite site.

The Instant Kitten is very interesting. I sometimes create sound from image using the color tone generator "Coagula Light",

It's interesting to see how image converts to sound in unique ways, seemingly difficult to understand--unless one understands the underlying architecture of the instrument's construction.

I like the opera house lumiere because the poeple and the revolving door are a simple and yet interesting view.
