On shift from general to specific spaces

click for video: Quicktime / direct streaming for PC

" Instead of viewing a landscape, the voodler(s) preferred to feel it, and with the feeling went a heightened perception of its beauty.Instead of comparing one landscape with another, came the surrender to the power of each, to the moments of individual delight; instead of dividing up the landscape into items, a struggle to express its unity [...] "The transformation of objects in space, or objects in time, /To objects outside either, but tactile, still precise... /It's always the same problem-/Nothing's more abstract, more unreal than what we actually see./The job is to make it otherwise.."

Quoting Wright, Sam Renseiw transformed recent footage from a not-so-far-away (urban)landscape into something more specific, while maintaing a sense of abstraction. View the slow-gliding, down-to-earth tinted and somewhat regressive (de)tour by clicking here or on the links above, remembering that the seemingly specific always remains generic, in more ways that not.
