On over your cities grass will grow

" A voodling device is less of a machine to produce order than a trap to catch randomness; A trap to transfix those small details that one would find banal, or farcical, or anecdotic, or just plain goofy, but that are, nevertheless, the intrinsic fabric of the voodle on its way to be made. Ultimately, the real enemy is rational intention. To me, voodling is what enables the elimination of all traces of intents. You must understand that I value such concepts as: randomness, serendipity, experimentation. These are things that interest me greatly in what may become, in reverberations, new reflections on the nature of voodles.."

Paraphrasing Labarthe, Sam Renseiw persist with his prolonged obsessive-compulsive voodle experiment, this time with yet another attempt at the repossession of space(s) with recently captured footage. View the discretely cut-up, hastily montaged docu-voodle of documented spaces with distinct songs without words overlay by clicking here or on the links above to realise how randomness and serendipity always seem so intentional after the creative act.

And, regarding other ways of anticipating space: a special bonus-video, [©],a bookish treat, dedicated, from the patalab archive: abstract space(s) out-layed, cut-up, unfolded. (patalabarchive# 1, 02'32'',39MB, Quicktime/mov)

The hirsute ghost of S.R. leads us through the recesses of his mind. Happily along for the ride, we marvel at the construction/destruction/reconstruction all around us.

The best kind of being lost.

I like the way that shapes and lines and still images all have their own
narratives--we know this is a tower, we know this is a wall.

I like the idea from science fiction that in some future era we may encounter another intelligent life, and find that their shapes and lines are completely disorienting.

Very nice film.

re:shapes and lines/future.

yes, indeed. yet simulaneously, we might allready carry the future in or around us, together with the past.. in he shapes and space we use.

the scenes from the heinrich award are recorded in the "grey hall" in christiania. it was build as a exercise hall for the military for indoor parading, /horsemanship/fencing and the like.

" "Christiania's biggest cultural venue with room for 1500 people, 'Den Grå Hal' is something of an authority on the Danish music scene, and despite it's somewhat modest appearance, has hosted some of the biggest stars in music, like Metallica, Bob Dylan and Rage Against the Machine. But it's not just music going on here, often there are other events like markets theatre or parties taking place. The building was originally erected as a riding hall for the military back in 1891.
