On more blind-voodling for spaceships

" Finally: a mesmerising magic blind oneiric voodle of the second kind for The Spaceship Earth Salon, an initiative started by an Oslo-based group with the intention to hijack the phenomenon of Scandinavian Design, rid it of retro-aestheticism, moralism and celebritism and forge a new current - embracing science, technology, magic and a radical paradigm of sustainable design."

Entering The Space Ship yesterday, blindfolded and lucidly dreaming away in visual languish, Sam Renseiw focused on magic pataphysical distortion clearances while simultaneously being guided through by a beautiful woman at the furniture fair.

Even the familiar shapes can seem alien if one pans the camera over them, pulling them from their familiar places, and unfolding them for a new use, as if they were folded along an inner through line.
In this film, the disparate spaces all fit as one sense of place in one film.

thank you. the voodle is actually put together from footage of 4 distinct interior locations (2 kyoto and 2 in copenhagen )
the element that bind them together, in a way, is the quite intricate folding door/panels from a room in kyoto.
the aim was to trigger something "stockholm-ish" in the concotion, as the blind-voodles were screened at an event there. unfortunately i was not able to attend the event & film at the furniture fair, so the blind-voodle concept had to be re-assessed; making it a pure pataphysical, "as if " presence.
