On showing reality, just voodling-by

"The last few nights he had had the most uncertain feelings about the sidewalk just around the corner here, moving in the starlight toward his house. He had felt that a moment prior to his making the turn, someone had been there. The air seemed charged with a special calm as if someone had waited there, quietly, and only a moment before he came, simply turned to a shadow and let him through. Perhaps his nose detected a faint perfume, perhaps the skin on the backs of his hands, on his face, felt the temperature rise at this one spot where a person’s standing might raise the immediate atmosphere ten degrees for an instant. There was no understanding it. Each time he made the turn, he saw only the white, unused, buckling sidewalk, with perhaps, on one night, something vanishing swiftly across a lawn before he could focus his eyes or speak."

Just passing by, Sam Renseiw, impressed by a Fahrenheit 451 deja-vu, meticulously recorded the seemingly spontaneous raucousness in 3 , uncut, panoramic takes.

Today's Bonus Lumiere Video features a new lofty departure. (Lum # 207, "oyutbound, again" 01'00'', 6.3 MB, Quicktime/mov)

Expect a more steady stream of finish[ing] docu-voodles on patalab until the end og august. Best summer wishes to all, Sam.

glad to see you back in action.

I read this article, by one of the genius fellows at,

and thought also that the camera is a cognitive extension, and that perhaps there is an epistemology in
being the observer, liberatedby and trapped within one's own preconceptions

thank you for pointing the paper out !

yes, indeed, "being the observer, liberated by and trapped within one's own preconceptions" is an epistemology...

during the past 10 days, i have accumulated quite a load of digital "footage".

in many ways, it seems the camera/hand/eye behaved, this time, with more concerns about promenading in /into a space/spaces...

let's see how the bit(es) will be developed, in the editing tool.
