" The OBEY voodle can be explained as an experiment in Phenomenology. Heidegger describes Phenomenology as “the process of letting things manifest themselves.” Phenomenology attempts to enable people to see clearly something that is right before their eyes but obscured; things that are so taken for granted that they are muted by abstract observation.The first aim of voodling is to reawaken a sense of wonder about one’s environment. The OBEY voodles attempts to stimulate curiosity and bring people to question both the voodles and their relationship with their surroundings. Because people are not used to seeing voodles for which a motive is not obvious, frequent and novel encounters with voodles provoke thought(s) and possible frustration, nevertheless revitalizing the viewer’s perception and attention to detail. The voodle has no meaning but exists only to cause people to react, to contemplate and search for meaning in the voodle. Because OBEY voodle has no actual meaning, the various reactions and interpretations of those who view it reflect their personality and the nature of their sensibilities."
