" Before going on to the particular problems of the nature of Voodles, it is important to define understandings of the ultimate aim of Voodling as such. Why does it exit? Who needs it ? Indeed does anybody need it? [...] Voodles, unlike Hollywood films, or TV soaps, have no practical goals in any material sense. Voodle is a meta-language, with the help of which people try to communicate with one another; to impart information about themselves and assimilate the experience of others. Yet, this sort of self-expression is meaningless unless it meets with a response. For the sake of creating a spiritual bond with others it can only be an agonising process, one that involves no practical gain: ultimately it is an act of sacrifice. But surely it cannot be worth the effort merely for the sake of hearing one's own echo ? "

Creating Voodles can be a drone-like state of mind, and, indeed, sacrificial in a prosaic world, muses Sam Renseiw while manufacturing more continuous visuals in sustained tonality.
