" 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)

Today's Bonus Lumiere Video features a moving contenplation of wild things (Lum # 277, "wild things", 01'00'', 14 MB, Quicktime/mov)

In a moment of juxtaposition, I mention that this week on another weblog, I saw images of a group of young chess genius players playing frisbee during a break from a Summer chess school.

I find frisbee so invigorating and
alive, and yet almost never throw one anymore. This video makes me wish to throw once again. I also follow some chess championships
in the US right now (the women's and the junior), so I am alive to the spinning of pawns and strategems. In chess, everything is art, and yet nothing is there but the moves.

I like avifauna, and in the idea of an Avian Way memorialized by a bird on a blue stone is delightful. I agree that a voodle is more a photograph than a painting. The old windmill catches my eye--a windmill here is so much more like Kansas and less like Europe.

Verian Thomas also made a video featuring his tune "forgotten":

I, in turn, made a cover of his song, which I called "forgotten fields". I like marveling at how each is distinct from the others, but they all fit together into one.
