On temporal and narrative voodle disorders

click for video: Quicktime / .m4v for iPod / direct streaming for PC at

"We are left to grasp hold of a story constructed of allusions that leaves us in a place of indeterminate temporal and narrative disorder in which concretization of the whole appears unattainable. When confronted with a work, shamelessly undisclosed and unresolved the viewer assumes an invigorating, empowered role where a myriad of potential narratives await completion."

Recently embedded in Sensuous Knowledge, Sam Renseiw investigated the depths of Unloud's unfolding in the wizardry of an appropriate cave in Os .

I've been saving up your voodles for a more leisurely and savoured viewing but just have to leave a sign on this one before leaving home this Saturday afternoon.

What an incredible space and what a wondrous voodle. Showing that which, as Cocteau would say, is hidden. Revealing the truth and beauty.

The haunting comfort of the guide's voice, the sudden greeting from the woman with the wine. The interplay of music, acoustic sound and lush, beautiful imagery. I'm loading it onto my ipod as I write.

The Lumiere is fantastic! I recorded one on a commercial flight earlier this year & toyed with posting it but I'm so glad I didn't...

dear sam
really special to see this. knowing that I walked right after you! and now seeing it with your eyes/ camera. It adds a whole new layer to what I 'live' already experienced. It is somehow what I experienced and on the other hand it is not at all that but a completely new story and search that produces new meanings. It was great to meet you over there, share thoughts and ideas. Hope to continue at some moment. bart
