I am kino-eye. I am a builder. I have placed you, whom I’ve created
today, in an extraordinary room which did not exist until just now
when I also created it. In this room there are twelve walls shot by me
in various parts of the world. In bringing together shots of walls and
details, I’ve managed to arrange them in an order that is pleasing and
to construct with intervals, correctly, a film-phrase which is the room.
Dziga Vertov, 1923
