" 1. It is necessary for me to tell you that my body is curious about everything and I am my body / 2. It is necessary for me to tell you that I am not alone / 3. It is necessary for me to tell you that I can control my body and voodle with it at the same time / 4. It is necessary for me to tell you that my body is escaping / 5. It is necessary for me to tell you that I can multiply my body / 6. It is necessary for me to tell you that you have to turn your head / 7. It is necessary for me to tell you that I am leaving you and I am giving you my footage / [8] It is necessary for me to tell you that I keep voodling while moving "

Paraphrasing the 7 necessities and one-upping it, Sam Renseiw gathered footage from a recent birthday party-dance-voodle session in casual architectural office settings.

Fascinating. The beat goes on. I am struck by the dimension of time, and the dimension of movement, and how bit a part sync and story play in how we perceive them.

Wonderful clip!

We are so busy getting our thoughts and words through, between pairs of eyes, we never see the conversations that takes place below: where our heels, tired checkered wellies and dirty boots meet. It's a pity. Because their language is beautiful. And honest. Or perhaps it's just the magic of the disco lights that does it

thanks :-)...
disco lights have their part and the lasers, too.

interesting thing observed while editing the footage (!):
how unsync sound is perceived, anyway.
while dancing, the ear(s) actually filter the music/beat out. in reality there was much more talk and other background noises then clear dance sound.
