On memories and poetic(s) of space(s)

"Our memories are encumbered with facts. Beyond the recollections we continually hark back to, we should like to relive our suppressed impressions and the dreams that made us believe in happiness: Ou vous ai-je perdue, mon imagerie pietinee (Where did I lose you, my trampled fantasies?) If we have retained an element of dream in our memories, if we have gone beyond merely assembling exact recollections, bit by bit the house that was lost in the mists of time will appear from out the shadow. We do nothing to reorganize it; with intimacy it recovers its entity, in the mellowness and imprecision of the inner life. It is as though something fluid had collected our memories and we ourselves were dissolved in this fluid of the past."

On cognitive time-space synaestesia

"Voodling removes one from the night and the day at the same time. It can neither bring into question nor bring into action this world that binds us.... the mind feels agitated, while in an aesthetic judgment about the beautiful in nature it is in restful contemplation. This agitation (above all at its inception) can be compared with a vibration, i.e. with a rapid alternation of repulsion from, and attraction to, one and the same object. If a thing is excessive for the imagination (and the imagination is driven to such excess as it apprehends the thing in intuition), then the thing is, as it were, an abyss in which the imagination is afraid to lose itself."

After another hectic work period, Sam Renseiw found time to re-collect parts of nevertheless acquired and amassed footage. Take a short peak into the concocted docu-voodled space of a (real) synaesthesia (psychology)lab with some added appearances. Click here or on the links above.
