i’m an eye

October 26, 2008

“i’m 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 horse’s mouth. i fall and rise with the 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 co-ordinate any and all points of the universe, wherever 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.” – dziga vertov (1923)
