"…our brain contains something akin both to a photographic plate and a phonographic cylinder, and many other things of the same kind not yet discovered; not a sight or a sound or a smell is lost; not a taste or feeling or an emotion. Unconscious memory records them all, without our even heeding what goes on around us beyond the things that attract our immediate interest or attention. […]...the Voodle should not have to do with an exploit or record, it would be neither a peak to scale nor an ocean floor to reach ... [it] would not be heroic, or spectacular; it would be something simple and discreet."

Trapped by an overflowed harddisk and simultaneous chores, Sam Renseiw nevertheless managed to voodle around in his spare time, montage-ing bits of footage anyway.

I like the wide variety of images here--the fence in blue light, the solitary boat floating on still waters, the food being spooned from a preparation pan, the cliffs. The montage is like a travel guide to a place I've never visited, and yet know by heart.
