On the morphology of space and body

"A man sets out to draw the world. As the years go by, he peoples a space with moving images of provinces, kingdoms, streets, bays, ships, islands, chairs, rooms, instruments, stars, horses, and individuals. A short time before he dies, he discovers that the patient labyrinth of lines traces the lineaments of his own face."

Every voodle seems to be an ideal plane inserted into the realm of reality, muses Sam Renseiw while compiling an intriguing, fairly complex and condensed montage of interior gazes, extracted back into outward appearances. View the puzzling, fragmented piece, encompassing a personal endoscopic travel, fixed interior tableaux of otherwise inaccessible theatrical spaces and reflective vistas of minute, fleeting passage by clicking here or on the links above.

On the subject of theaters in inaccessible places, I'd like to introduce you to the work of Mars Tokyo, whose miniature theaters
captivates. Each of a complete little still voodle of its own, before you invented the format.
A "theater doodle", or "thoodle", perhaps, elaborate constructions, skilfully done--not miniature houses of fun and dolls by any means.

The orthoscopy reminded me of medical procedures past, which confirms, I suppose, that I am 48 rather than 18.

Great montage style. It really works here! That night scene, juxtaposed with the red chairs, is a stunning set of visuals.

I subscribed to magnatune, and I'm glad I did, because now I can go download some DJ Cary music!

the teeny theaters are, indeed fine miniatures. thanks for the link.ยจ

the two spaces in the video are usualy not accessible to the public in the new theater building in copenhagen...voodled at a "vernissage" afternoon last month, where the artists responsible for the "transformed" spaces, had the posibility to present them to the public.

and: yes, indeed, one gets older, and discovers new (in)sights... so did i.

the magnatune links is in fact quite serendipidous: it is from their "free download" of the day.. sometime, the music and the soundtrack title seems appropriate.

I was struck forcefully by the lumiere here, which conjured deep memories of a time in Finland years ago when I was young.

The launch platform, the chair, the sky and the expanse of gently rolling water. It's an image of deep and pleasurable meaning to me, of a time when the intensity of experience was still unfettered by the inevitable (but not necessarily permanent!) constraints of adulthood.

Rekindled happiness.
