On the practice of (almost) everyday voodling

"In order to grasp the formal structure of this practice, I have carried out two sorts of investigations. The first, more descriptive in nature, has concerned certain ways of voodling that were selected according to their value for the strategy of the analysis, and with a view to obtaining fairly differentiated variants: 'pataphysical practices, practices related to urban spaces, utilizations of everyday rituals, re-uses and functions of the memory through the "medias" that make possible (or permit) everyday practices, etc. In addition, other investigations have tried to trace the intricate forms of the operations proper to the recompositon of spaces by familial practices, on the one hand, and on the other, to the tactics of the art of voodling, which simultaneously organizes a network of relations, poetic ways of "making do" (bricolage), and a re-use of everyday structures."

Reflecting on the nature of fluid interfaces in everyday life, Sam Renseiw pondered on the question of the development of a sixth sense's in future voodling. Passing reflecting puddles, various navigation vehicles and even crossing a fluid gap, Sam captured formal structures the old fashioned way.
