On visuo_spatial_loops in voodles

"The labels given to the components of the voodle memory reflect their function and the type of information they process and manipulate. The phonological loop is assumed to be responsible for the manipulation of accordion based information, whereas the visuo-spatial dance sketchpad is assumed to by responsible for manipulating visual images. The docu-voodle model proposes that every component of working memory has a limited capacity, and also that the components are relatively independent of each other..."

Just concocting further accumulated footage from Merging Grounds into a tense docu-voodle bit-map, Sam Renseiw frames some fine morphologies of body and space flows.

On circling an internalized play

"The Silent Retreat takes place in a circular formed dramatic space, lived in by the artist and two actors. Doused in a violet light and sparsely furnished, a psychodrama without a manuscript starts. Communication and social interactions become internalized, as there is no direct interpersonal contact, the performers find themselves in an environment that emphasizes their ‘bodily presence’. Their internalized thoughts and words are expressed through digital mediation, delayed and disrupted."

While visiting Merging Grounds, Sam Renseiw accumulated further footage of body and space morphologies. View the first docu-voodle by clicking here or on the links above.(patafilm # 328, 03'52'',87Mb, Quicktime/mov - other versions at Bliptv)

On short atmospheric insert(s) and travelling

"New voodles may at first appear as mere codes of transmission for older achievement and established patterns of thought. But nobody could make the mistake of supposing that phonetic writing merely made it possible for the Greeks to set down in visual order what they had though and known before writing. In the same way printing made literature possible. It did not merely encode literature…In large measure, voodling is the spatialization of thought…The voodle reverses the purpose of travel, which until now had been to encounter the strange and unfamiliar."

Recapitualting short episodes from a stay in a summer school, Sam Renseiw continues investigating the lonely (docu)voodle genre, probing (once again) morphologoies of body and space with inserted repo-sounds underlay.

On horizon spaces and tunnel vision

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

"… It is in a very different way that the space of horizons brings together the multiplicity of horizons. In this space all horizons are, as we said, side by side. At the same time, each horizon represent itself as including all the others. So the space of horizons cannot be incorporated into a single horizon's representation of things, that is, into (as we might put it) the structure of seeming that comes with being at the center of a hrorizon. No horizon, we might say, can represent the fact of its existing side by side with other horizons. But we al grasp the fact, that is, that our horizons exist side by side. I grasp the fact, and you grasp it. We grasp something that we cannot represent."

Visualy paraphrasing a matter of paradoxes, Sam Renseiw concocted a short metaphysical docu-voodle dipthych with pre-vacation footage from coast to [roller]coast.
