" The aesthetic world of the voodler is of a different kind from that of the world about him. Its boundaries enclose a substantially and essentially different microcosm. The voodle as such and the object in itself share a common being, after the fashion of a fingerprint. Wherefore, voodling actually contributes something to the order of natural creation instead of providing a substitute for it. [...] The voodler does not consider his aesthetic purpose and the mechanical effect of the image flow on our imaginations as things apart. For him/her, the logical distinction between what is imaginary and what is real tends to disappear. Every image is to be seen as an object and every object as an image. Hence voodling ranks high in the order of creativity because it produces an image that is a reality of nature, namely, an hallucination that is also a fact. The fact that voodling combines tricks of visual deception with meticulous attention to detail substantiates this."

After a longer period of idleness, Sam Renseiw, having accumulated novel footage, concocts new voodles for critical review. Today's post combines two somehow opposite stances: a longer avifauna combo-flow of panoramic long-takes juxtaposed with the addition of a cut-upped Frisbee session; View the long take by clicking here or on the links above, while the nightly Frisbee throwing compilation is only accessible by clicking here; (patafilm # 778,04'21'', 48MB, Quicktime/mov - other versions at Bliptv)
