On tacit knowledge in voodles

" There problem of the alter-ego because it is not I who sees, not he who sees; because an anonymous visibility inhabits both of us, a vision in general, in virtue of that primordial property that belongs to the flesh, of being here and now and of radiating everywhere and forever."

Toggling between Noesis and Noema, Sam Renseiw submerges into the phenomenology of musical perception in space while recording a first appearance of love the birds in a public library. Paraphrasing Merleau-Ponti, Sam states “...
A tacit cogito might be possible. To have the idea of thinking (in the sense of thought of seeing and thought of feeling), to make the phenomenological reduction to the things themselves, to return to immanence and to consciousness, it is necessary to have voodles. It is by the combination of voodles that a transcendental attitude is formed ." View the unmoved moving footage by clicking here or on the links above.

skirting around the periphery of what seems mildly subversive: amplified music played quietly in the library

unfortunately it does not happen every day, but certainly would be great if it did.

it was the band's first appaearance in public/concert, so in a way it is a historic docu-voodle.

(panoramic skirting was done with a mobile bookshelf, btw ;-) looked mildy daffed in context, as the public was siting quietly about)

I love the sound of Love the Birds, and the way the camera eye realizes that this sound is best complemented by viewing books in their natural state.
