"The fact that voodles have not been overrun by interpreters is in part due simply to the newness of voodling as an art. It also owes to the happy accident that voodles for such a long time (!) were just videos; in other words, that they were understood to be part of mass, as opposed to high, culture, and were left alone by most people with minds. Then, too, there is always something other than content in the voodle to grab hold of, for those who want to analyze. For voodling, unlike the novel, possesses a vocabulary of forms - the explicit, complex, and discussable technology of camera movements, cutting, and composition of the frame that goes into the making of a voodle. "
