On blind-voodling furniture for spaceships

"Being an “un-fair” - a mirror event of the actual fair - our means of expression will include spectacular surprises from the Scandinavian contemporary underground - in music, dance, art and magic - celebrating the inception of still “un-designed” & “un-manufactured” products and spaces - addressing the scene’s urgent need for fun, beauty, meaning and action. The Space Ship Earth Salon is scheduled for apparition at major events in design and architecture internationally. Its aim is to advocate an optimistic view of science, technology and reality production, radical strategies for intelligent design - and the free exploration of the human body - including inner and outer space."

Momentarily blinded by circumstances, Sam Renseiw donned his magic exile goggles and migrated to Stockholm. Guided by a young & utterly beautiful young lady, Renseiw managed to record some useful footage at the Stockholm Furniture Fair and vicinity locations.

Sight and sound travel often through unseen and silent alleyways.

The soundtrack to this film was created through a collaboration between David Velez, who records as Lezrod, a man from Bogota, Colombia, now living in New York USA, and Robert Nunnally, who records as gurdonark and who lives in north Texas USA. The method of colloboration was unseen--Lezrod took a significant sound sample from gurdonark and morphed it into the final dub.

So, too, the visuals here assemble, sight unseen, a pastiche of images unexpected and, though disparate, are united by the magic of the viewer's perception.

I liked this one very much--it really held my interest, as the tiles and the perambulator and the walking woman all came into and out of the view, like so many minimal beats in a crisp dub melody.
