A lecture on the design of the Picture Palace at Merchants road, Galway. 


‘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 MOTION, I DRAW NEAR, THEN AWAY FROM OBJECTS, I CRAWL UNDER, I CLIMB ONTO THEM… 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... MY PATH LEADS TO THE CREATION OF A FRESH PERCEPTION OF THE WORLD. I DECIPHER IN A NEW WAY A WORLD UNKNOWN TO YOU.’ 

D.Vertov 1923.
