"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.
