On minor complications in Voodling practice

"This kind of research is sometimes complicated by the fact that Voodle practices themselves alternately exacerbate and disrupt our logics. Its regrets are like those of the poet, and like him, it struggles against oblivion: "And I forgot the element of chance introduced by circumstances, calm or haste, sun or cold, dawn or dusk, the taste of strawberries or abandonment, the half-understood message, the front page of newspapers, the voice on the telephone, the most anodyne conversation, the most anonymous man or woman, everything that speaks, makes noise, passes by, touches us lightly, meets us head on."

Trying eagerly to maintain a daily struggle against oblivion, Sam Renseiw edits quotidian footage attempting to integrate vital elements of chance, hapticity and serendipity into each individual crafted voodle.

Hi! Hope you don't mind I shared your spring session Lumiere on my school blog at
I'm kidding about what I said about it being voyeurism! Hehe.
Your video made me think that in this age where it's so easy to film others or get filmed, it can be kinda scary to think that someone might be watching without oneself knowing.
But on the flip side, if that can be turned into a more artistic viewpoint, like into an artistic gaze, modern day surveillance can be modified and turned into something good!
That's what your video got me to think.
Many thanks for the vid!
