I am an eye.
A mechanical eye,
I the machine show you a world the way only I can see it. I free myself for today and forever from human immobility, I’m in constant movement. I approach and pull away from objects. I creep under them, I move alongside a running horses mouth I fall and rise with falling and rising bodies. This is I the machine manoeuvring in the chaotic movements, recording one movement after another in the most complex combinations Freed from the boundaries of time and space, I coordinate any and all points of the universe, whenever I want them to be. My way leads towards the creation of a fresh perception of the world thus I explain in a new way the world unknown to you….Pudovkin
