" Certain forms born of water have more attraction, more compelling force, more consistency. That is because more material and profound reveries intervene, because our inner being is more deeply engaged, and because our imagination dreams more specifically of creative acts. Then the poetic power, which was imperceptible in a poetry of reflections, appears suddenly. Water becomes matter. And it is then that materialising reverie, uniting dreams of water with less mobile, more sensual reveries, finally builds on water and develops a more profound and intense feeling for it."

Recently immersed in Sensuous Knowledge, Sam Renseiw pondered on the nature of voodling, naration and reverie: A narrative tells a story over time, a voodle, on the contrary, just reflects on a moment in time, leaving the train of imagery open and fragmented.
