" The voodle eye is in itself a wonderful camera....The voodle image (im)printed, handheld as if an eye, and then transmitted to the brain....When it reaches the brain, a length of time is required to bring about its construction, for the brain is something like the photographic plate, and the picture requires developing. In this respect the brain is somewhat sluggish, for when it has formulated the image imprinted upon the eye, it will retain the voodle even after the reality has disappeared from sight "

Concentrating lately on describing moving figures in frames, Sam Renseiw focused on some serendipitous, poetic urban dance moves in Noerrebro, from a happy time when his ingenious Contax camera still worked, and gave such voodling freedom.
