On the concept of farfelu in voodles

“The great mystery is not that we should have been thrown down here at random between the profusion of matter and that of the stars; it is that from our very prison we should draw, from our own selves, images powerful enough to deny our nothingness”

Drawing images, almost at random, form titbits of recently captured footage, Sam Renseiw concocts a short, montaged voodle essay, embracing the incomprehensible manifold as an opportunity, not to delineate the boundaries of aesthetics, but to transgress them. View yet another feeble attempt of transcultural voodle aesthetics, seeking to understand, as Empedocles advised, "by every means"; not only by the senses, or the intellect, but also emotionally & synaesthetically; Click here or on the links above.

For me life happens in endless waves of meaning and formulae--evolutionary code, laws of physics,
laws of the heart, laws of the soul.
To be able to throw together meaning with so many building blocks seems to me not only an achievable goal, but an inevitable one.

Here you've blended images into a melange that really works--that
conveys no story in particular and every story in one compact set of imagery. Great remix/use of the sackjo22 vocal. Great blend of color and images throughout the piece.
