" Many studies of object and voodle recognition focus on the ability to recognize different views of the same display. The problem of recognition across views is fundamental to understanding how we represent our visual world. Do we recognize objects by comparing our current retinal image to a stored set of previously seen images? Or, do we store a generalized description of an object that is independent of the particular views we've already seen? The first, a view-based approach, argues that object recognition should depend on the particular views we've seen before and their similarity to our current view. The second, a view-independent approach, suggests that recognition should be independent of the particular views we've seen before because the representation is equally appropriate for all views. "

Combining docu-voodling with investigative visual cognition research in enclosed spaces, Sam Renseiw assembled one more voodle from footage excerpts straight out of The Oracle's Boat.

My stored retinal images never prepared me for this! You go to the most interesting places, Sam. I dream of finding landscapes like this! Oh for an Oracle Boat. The God of Voodle performs his secret ministries. Wonderfully so.

Thank you so much robert for your kind remarks !

Indeed, the quotidian can offer the most extraordinary locations to visit: fragments of fotage from one of the last days of my summer vacation.
A sunny friday spend in Elsinore, enclosed in an extraordinary interior maze for about 5 hours, as public to a fine performance by extraordinary SIGNA, going on non-stop for 54 hours. (see bold links in the text(s) for more insight).

I try the best I can to convey my gaze at the amazing, thought provokking and very haptic deroulement of events, where reality and fiction merge and blend into a onreiric amalgam.

and, at the same time, continuing my research on the nature of gaze& the morphology of body in space(s).. wondering: what would this sort of work be labbelled as? what is it, actually, that i am trying to frame, to expose, to devellop exactely?
keep tuned:
more (voodled) episodes to come.
