On looking back at re-presentation

"... Occasionally legs and feet emerge in front of the camera as do overhead voices on the soundtrack but these are not voodles about people but about the resonance of space. Building day after day these two to three minute works create a library or repository of images from which the viewer can draw or withdraw. There is a willful denial of narrative progression and the audience is called upon to realize that they are re-tracing their own steps; going back to the same familiar passage. Forced to confront everything again till eventually seeing it all for the first time. "

Just returned from a trip to London, Sam Renseiw, overwhelmed by recorded footage, is busy editing the coming patafilms; Exhausted by the recent first public outing at a renown research centre and followed by an encore by his alter-ego, Sam hopes to maintain the future qualitative output of patamatic cinema.

look right! look left! Look, it's London!

I remember on my first visit there, some wise soul counseled "look both ways, or else you'll get run over!".
