On the simple joys of not moving

"To voodle and walk is to lack a place. It is the indefinite process of being absent and in search of an appropriation. The voodling about that the city multiplies and concentrates makes the city itself an immense social experience of lacking a place- an experience that is, to be sure, broken up into countless tiny deportations, compensated for by the relationships and intersections of these exoduses that intertwine and create an urban fabric, and placed under the sign of what ought to be, ultimately, the place but is only a name, the City."

As the conscious practice of voodling everyday life may [also] lead to simple, yet effective tactics to stay phenomenologically put, Sam Renseiw remained at home.

Today's Bonus Lumiere Video reflects a short, abridged moment of walking in the city, continuing the enlightning tactics of voodle practice in everyday life. (Lum # 193 " dog-bridge-train" 00'56'', 6MB, Quicktime/mov)

The change-of-scope inherent in childhood comes to mind. A few blocks to a child with no transportation other than a bicycle is a world. Perhaps in a voodle a balcony becomes a world, too.

the copenhagen balcony as the place of prosperity and gleeful yet unconscious time lag...

it's 51 weeks ago I had the pleasure to sit there together with you, drinking coffee and daydreaming out calmly what can be if you let go and try to take in what there is to be met with. to stay phenomenologically put is what the balcony - phenomenologically spoken - provides... and outlooks and insights is its spacious content.

some remain at home, others go home, the voodle(r) reaches out and stays put. ;-)
