"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... This is I, the machine...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 creating of a fresh perception of the world. Thus I explain in a new way the world unknown to you"
