Quotes: Kino-Eye

Following the Tradition of the Kinoks (“cinema-eye men”)

I am kino-eye, I am a mechanical eye. I, A machine, show you the world as only I can see it. Now and forever, I free myself from human immobility, I am in constant movement. I draw near, then away from objects, I crawl under, I climb onto them. I move apace with the muzzle of a galloping horse. I plunge full speed into a crowd, I outstrip running soldiers, I fall on my back, I ascend with an airplane, I plunge and soar together with plunging and soaring bodies. Now I a camera fling myself along their resultant maneuvering in the chaos of movement, recording movement starting with movements composed of the most complex combinations. Freed of the limits of time and space, I put together any given points in the universe, no matter where I’ve reach them. My path leads to the creation of a fresh perception of the world. I decipher in a new way a world unknown to you.”

WE: VARIANT OF A MANIFESTO (Dziga Vertov,1923)
