On architectural investigations in voodle

" 65./ Here we come up against the great question that lies behind all these considerations….- for someone might object against me: " You take the easy way out! You talk about all sorts of voodle games, but have nowhere said what the essence of a voodle-game and hence voodling, is: what is common to all these activities, and what makes them into voodles or parts of voodling. So you let yourself off the very part of the investigation that once gave you yourself most headache, the part about the general form of footage recordings and of voodling." And this is true.- instead of producing something common to all we call patafilmic language, I am saying that those phenomena have no one thing in common which makes us use the same word for all.- but because that they are related to one another in many different way. And it is because of this relationship, or these relationships, that we call them all "voodles".

Pondering on the intricacies of visual language & mixing cross-references, all the while attempting to maintaining an architectural stance, Sam Renseiw recently recorded pin-up footage in a closed space, accompanied by yellow submarine excerpts.

I like the way that everything we see is, from one point of view, on the periphery. Yet it is the point of view only, as it all depends on the parts to which one is paying attention.
