“All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts, His acts being seven ages”

What could be exotic about attractive young people in fashionable clothes?

In many ways, not a thing. A diploma day, an art event, the comfort of modernity, the modernity of comfort.

Even the sense of delightful "otherness" of "a place across the ocean" does not detract from the experience, as this could just as easily be a video of an arts magnet high school in Vermont in the USA.

Yet the viewer comes with these senses of reaction/familiarity/alienation/sympathy
from a particular vantage in a particular way. If all the people are merely players, then how many of us play the audience? Groundlings on stage.

I like that the voodle gives the reader not only the chance to bring plot, but also the chance to bring assumptions. The child is father of th man--but the assumption is so often the mother of all experiences perceived.

Another fine voodle!

On Lumiere 125 'Catwalk Delay';
not since the introduction of the horizontal rule has there been staged a more complex 'motive' problem as we can view in this lumiere! what a view!

About 'On glimpses of staged fashions';
the space between the sexes - a kinetic mirror - although 'only' virtual, becomes The mirror per se. it's stunning to view the precision in which this video prospects The stage, screens The players and stages The never ending game of Entrances and Exits... it's so easy... and so ...precise! Mesmerizing!
