On spatial occurrences in voodles

" After I've slept many dreams, I go out to the street with eyes wide open but still with the aura and assurance of my dreams. I'm astonished by my automatism, which prevents others from really knowing me. For i go through daily life still holding the hand of my astral nursemaid; my steps are in perfect accord with the obscure designs of my sleeping mind. And I walk in the right direction; i don't stagger; I react well; I exist. [...] And it is then, in the middle of life's bustle, that my dream becomes a marvellous voodle. I walk along an unreal downtown street, and the reality of its non-existent lives affectionately wraps my head in a white cloth of false memories. I'm a navigator engaged in unknowing myself."

Paraphrasing Pessoa, Sam Renseiw begins to share the quiet anxiety of compulsive production while uploading yet another voodle.

one step,two steps,three steps, four. we want more steps. more steps. more.

very strong.

"I'm a navigator engaged in unknowing myself" is a fantastic goal.

lead the way.

and what a fine ornament that is! √°lvero de campos floating above in the act of posthumous voodling?

thank you daniel.

actually, it is a quote from bernardo soares, the assistant bookkeeper...

" i am, in large measures, the selfsame images i voodle " still paraphrasing soares, could in many ways also be my realisation, trying make some sense of the seen.

The images shift phases and interlock with the finesse of a flanger, each new node of vision like another phased bit of sound, creating new ideas through the interface.
