On just passing by, voodling

"As a member of the crowd that populates the streets, the Voodler participates physically in the images that he observes while performing a transient and aloof autonomy with a "cool but curious eye" that studies the constantly changing spectacle that parades before him . As an observer, the Voodler exists as both "active and intellectual". As a literary device, one may understand him as a narrator who is fluent in the hieroglyphic vocabulary of visual culture. When he assumes the form of narrator, he plays both protagonist and audience--like a commentator who stands outside of the action, of whom only the viewer is aware, "float[ing] freely in the present tense".The Voodler has no specific relationship with any individual, yet he establishes a temporary, yet deeply empathetic and intimate relationship with all that he sees--an intimacy bordering on the conjugal--inserting a bit of himself into the margins of the image in which he is immersed, a voodle devised by selective disjunction."

Just passing by, Sam Renseiw floated freely in the present tense, in a peaceful moment, not yet overwhelmed by earthquakes, tsunamis and nuclear fall-out.
