On culinary voodling with dance bits

click for video. Quicktime / Flash / direct streaming for PC

" In this way, if we repeat the principal states of Voodling, the figure of a dancer - moving a foot, in mid-air, pirouetting - will even when not possessing its own trajectory or offering a dynamic sensation, be much more like a dancer, and much more like dancing, than would a single figure frozen in just one of the states that build up a movement. The Voodle therefore can be invaded and pervaded by the essence of the subject. It can be obsessed by the subject to the extent that it energetically invades and obsesses the public with its own values. It will not exist as a passive object over which an unconcerned viewer can take control for its own enjoyment. It will be an active thing that imposes its own extremely free essence on the viewers, though this will not be graspable with the insipid facility common to all videos that are too faithful to ordinary reality. To further this study of reality multiplied in its volumes, and the multiplication of the lyrical plastic sensation of these, we have conceived a method of Voodling, highly original in its mechanical means, which we have already made known to some of our friends."

Somehow futuristic, extravagant and certainly very moving, the performance and the various dishes pervaded Sam Renseiw with an exquisite fine flow of haptic encounters.(with some quite radical surprises, though) View the culinary docu-voodle complete with concrete nipples-in-the-bowl by clicking here or on the links above.
