On Video Sketching* and Body Takes

.
* To draw;
Make a drawing; make, formulate or give a description of an (your) absorption; take in, also metaphorically, the representation of an (your) absorption/attraction
* To doodle;
Make a doodle; draw aimlessly
* To paint;
Make a painting of; paint (colour) an absorption/attraction; apply paint to
.
Your intuition alert and with ‘Vertov’s subjective camera’ in mind; investigate in the properties/nature of body as the nude. Use the video camera as sketching tool and try to capture the properties of ‘body’ by drawing it, doodling it or painting it.
.
Your awareness is focused on:
The body/nude only – the body/nude as a still (n; akt). The body/nude as an object/matter of mass, volume, surface, form, shape, etc. The body/nude as the undraped human figure in art. The body/nude as the starting point - and an expression (of yours). The body/nude as being a resistance, receiver, absorber, etc.
.
You will not focus on:
The model as a person – the personality of the model. How the body is taking up space, how it is placed within the space and how it is grounded (standing, sitting etc). Sound/audible information.

A short experimental docu-voodle by bk featuring two simultaneously shot videos of a new doing* captured in Oslo, Norway - 2008.09.02. The second ever produced dooble-voodle shows in two frames two artistic and very different views on the body as the undraped human figure in art and hence proofes again that no views ever can be the same. See the classical lumiere to the right and the novelty of a video-sketch to the left - both for the sake of the dooble-voodle enhanced by digital means and very audible talents (soundtrack 'the dancers' by ccmixters onlymeith).

On Spectators and Grainy Views

"Who will close my eyes for me?
When my last exhalation slips out unseen
No BPM left inside the machine
The piercing wink-out of a CRT screen-
Who will close my eyes for me?
Dust gathers on glass
Reflecting personal effects
Fingerprints and water remain
Bedside of what used to be
Who will close my eyes for me?
“Rest” is a verb; impossible now
“In peace” is subjective
-How can meat get upset?
Terrible solemn tenderness
As bald as lust,
As stark as an empty stomach,
Older than speech-
The frozen silence swells to fill the heart
Of the unknown one
Who will close my eyes for me."
Close My Eyes - duckett
.
A short experimental docu-voodle by bk featuring "a" spectator's interlaced and grainy view on the unfamiliar/familiar... or the mere reflection on his own personal effects? Welcome, associative viewers, associate with the spectator and the incident captured in Oslo, Norway - 2008.08.17. - and make up your own mind... but know that; you're guilty anyway! To 'close my eyes' is not an option - it never has been - but it sure is effective for the view presented (colab frozen silence remix featuring duckett)!

"If it was not for the sky

On The Third Season

Video thumbnail. Click to play

.
"Four days ago, Oslo started its day by looking at itself covered in fresh snow. It was the first snow at this end of the year. That day it kept snowing until noon. By early afternoon the snow was about to disappear and the colours of autumn did slightly emerge again. They pressed through the vanishing white on the ground. They sparkled against the heavy sky - and indeed the veil of grey that Oslo knows so well, vanished too.

In other parts of the world a place had started its day by looking at itself after a hurricane of some sort just passed by. Noon with its bright daylight is far ahead and the veil of grey sits within the place - is stuck to the place - and there seems to be no melting white. Nothing is vanishing – nothing there to introduce a change.

A voodler captures moments – that’s what she can do. Yet sometimes she forgets to voodle but stands still and numb… because not all the moments can be captured… there are not enough cameras to voodle with and morning, noon and evening happen so fast… some moments remain unspoken and un-voodled.

A voodler captures moments – and she does that every time at least twice." b.k.

Talking Hands and Confabulations

click to play in Quicktime / mpeg-4 video for iPod / direct streaming at blip.tv
.
A short experimental docu-voodle by moi featuring a schmooze of some sort and hence her confabulation on an incident that already seems long gone. The tattle of and on manus was captured in Oslo, Norway - 2008.09.13 - just the day after the world's first private screening of voodles and lumieres in a not so crowded public space near Kuba. Moi insists on that what we view are not only the (prehensile) extremities of the superior limbs of two voodlers and hence the representation of the female gaze, but it's the confirmation on and the commitment towards voodling and free subjective frozen frames. Talking hands are mashed-up with the help of Gurdonark and Colin Mutchler - both vital and vibrant members of ccmixter.org.

After a break of almost two months - gathering voodle-footage from the far east and the now old east-vest - LOMEG_ROM waves a friendly and grateful hand at The Lumiere Founders and at the godfather of LOMEG_ROM, The Co-Coiner of the voodle-term and The First Voodler of them all; Sam Renseiw at spacetwo : patalab.

“When age fell upon the world, and wonder went out of the minds of men; when grey cities reared to smoky skies tall towers grim and ugly, in whose shadow none might dream of the sun or of Spring's flowering meads; when learning stripped the Earth of her mantle of beauty and poets sang no more of twisted phantoms seen with bleared and inward looking eyes; when these things had come to pass, and childish hopes had gone forever, there was a man who travelled out of life on a quest into spaces whither the world's dreams had fled.”

Time Lag

Video thumbnail. Click to play

.
"Sometimes a man rises from the supper table
and goes outside. And keeps on going
because somewhere to the east there’s a church.
His children bless his name as if he were dead.

Another man stays at home until he dies,
stays with plates and glasses.
So then it is his children who go out
into the world, seeking the church that he forgot."
.
A not too short experimental docu-voodle by bk featuring an incredible beauteous moment of time lag captured in peaceful summer Oslo, Norway - 2008.07.23 at 19:05 hours. View three zoomed in glances at a fine young Norwegian woman (and thus time) standing still but not. It's neither Garbo nor 'filmkunst' but a docu-voodle with a very pleasant soundtrack by zikweb.
.
The space Rainer Maria Rilke talks about is neither the space of the wanderer nor is it the space of hereditary but it is the potential of time lag - an interstitial space or state constantly between the lines, full of longings and regrets, but for those who know it it's the space that moves mass.

"As soon as you acknowledge the possibility of a certain type of being or a certain type of environment, you create that environment, because you tend to select and nourish those facets of that environment … With human beings, what patterns our world is our perception of it. I had a very clear instance of this. I’d always had a problem with New York because it’s such a menagerie of craziness. My answer to that has been a tendency to retreat into high places – most of my apartments were at the top of buildings …"
.
A not too short experimental docu-voodle by bk featuring a dwell about, and longing for, the cool refreshment he talks about in 'star diving and space travels'. Back in the city of Oslo and suddenly surrounded by 'tropical heat', bk recalls a quote by the famous video-painter Brian Eno and thus voodles about his desire for a certain environment... View the dwell on a slow-moving liquified pixelation of a cool but nevertheless completely dispensable habitual method of procedure - all accompanied by artemisstrong ambient soundscape 'tiger by the tail'.

On Star Diving and Space Travels

.
A short experimental docu-voodle by bk featuring a beautiful young lady at her preparations for a dive into the cold unknown sea of sparkling stars - documented in Risør, South Norway, 2008.07.10, at 10:26 am. This captured incident of beauteous duration may not provide humanity with a great deal of new knowledge, yet it is nevertheless delightful to view - over and over again - and btw; sometimes it takes a great deal of courage and personal strength to dive into 18 degrees Celsius of wet and gloomy Northern Sea (Skagerrak), trying to navigate around the lots of jelly fish with their burning threats...
.
For those of the viewers curious about star diving and space travels; listen carefully to the very pleasant ambient soundtrack by ccmixter's teru featuring a lecture by Professor Stephen Hawking honouring NASA's 50th anniversary - it might tell you 'what we will find when we go into space'.

Principles; fixed camera (what moves is the lens trying to focus), tripod, no audio, no zoom (although the view has been zoomed in to), no effects and going on for exactly 60'' (65'' with credits).

On Headspace and the Tectonics of Views

"Sometimes all that is needed is a little bit of magic. It doesn't need much talent, developed skills nor a genius view... only presence and waiting ...serendipity.
On the other hand it is possible to witness this magic occurring over and over again - it exists and it can be found as a real trouvé - yet it is in no sense the result of chance and portion but rather the outcome of one of internet's most fruitful and skilled collaborations; the titans of voodling with sound."
.
A short experimental mirror-voodle by bk featuring an extension of earlier presented footage juxtaposed as it is. View the deep and sound space perturbed only by a placing - or by being placed - in nearness or contiguity. Even though Juxtaposition might be a very unsafe criterion of continuity... don't be afraid, gurdonark's sound meditation, alt. mediation, provides us with plenty of headspace, clear tectonic views and - although many voices - one mass. Looking for contiguity, perturbative spaces, moving mass and the sorts; what more can you ask for, b.k.?! Gurdonark's really sound collocation 'one mass, many voices' and many many of his other nice appositions and tuned tessellations can be found at ccmixetr.org.
