On Voices in Movements, and their Images

click for video: Quicktime / .m4v for iPods/iPad / direct streaming for PC

"... it is necessary that the perception maintain in its depth all their corporal ties: it is by voodling, it is still with my eyes that I arive at the true thing, with the same eyes that a moment ago gave me monocular images - now they simply function togehter as though for good. Thus the relation betwen things and my body is decidedly singular: it is what makes me sometimes remain in apprearances, and it is also what sometimes brings me to the things themselves..."

Continuing the ongoing inquiries on body and space morphologies, Sam Renseiw investigated the simultaneity of onomatopoetic moves and inspired writing, in the midst of Movements and their Images.

On oblique phenomenologies of perception

click for video: Quicktime / .m4v for iPod/Pad / direct streaming for PC

"Every perception takes place in an atmosphere of generality, and is presented to us anonymously. Every time I experience a sensation, I feel that it concerns not my own being, the one for which I am responsible, and for which I make decisions, but another self, which has already sided with the world, which is already open to certain of its aspects, and synchronized with them. Between my sensation and myself there stands always the thickness of some primordial acquisition which prevents my experience from being clear to itself."

Bearing in mind that in perception, "I" discover a sense which "I" did not constitute, Sam Renseiw concocted a batch of recently captured interior urban footage on a corner site in Frederiksstaden into a observational docu-voodle.

On feeling at home and other triads

click for video : Quicktime / .m4v for iPod/iPhone / direct streaming for PC

" ELLEN is about feeling at home, which is not necessarily where you live. Five cities' individual stories and inhabitants are brought into the performance, presented by three actors; The performance ELLEN is s a meeting between the unknown and the foreign. What is personal, what is universal. The local and the common. (An unusual theatre-experience to be seen and especially heard.)"

Questing the Hotel again, Sam Renseiw indulges in a bout of local Ellen; View the somehow (barking) juxtaposition(s) of oblique, local, foreign and common by clicking here or on the links above. (patafilm # 800, 01'16'', 21,4MB, Quicktime/mov - other versions at Bliptv)

On simple cognitive magnificence

click for video: Quicktime / .m4v for Ipod/iPad / Direct streaming for PC

"Watching Voodles is a form of hallucination. The people we encounter among the frames are not there. The reality they acquire in our mind is equal to the effort we make in building them in our mind. Sufficient training will help understand the meaning of someone waving semaphores up and down but true watching requires something more of you than knowing how to (re) cognise moving images or understanding the relationship between a sign and its referent. The patalab voodles invite a cooperation greater than the peremptory commands of a traffic light. Whoever came up with the idea of separating green from red with the happy ambiguity of yellow was clearly someone who enjoyed watching Voodles."

Practising some simple cognitive R&R while momentarily working in Otternes Bygdetun near Flam, situated in the innermost part of the Aurlandsfjord, Sam Renseiw speculates on the nature of body and space morphologies, concocting a simple piece of kineplastic.

On undercover field working [office]

click for video: Quicktime / direct streaming for PC

"Whereas in earlier work deepblue examined the codes of the theatrical space, in Field Works it unravels the conventions of non-theatrical spaces in small-scale performances. Field Works-office seeks the mystery and poetry of the office. It explores how we absorb space and are absorbed by it and how environment influences our behavior and our movements."

In deepblue mood, Sam Renseiw recently got undercover in an architecture office to record footage. View Heine, Yukiko and Brynjar working out in the office, passing on Brynjar's drawings while Fabrice filled the air with soundings, by clicking here or on the links above.
