Because of this, the sci-fi genre also allows for its stories to become quite complex.
Making us of the fact that the eye retains an image for a fraction of a second after it diappeared, he built a motorized machine, 'Rotary Glass Plates Precision Optics '.
Segments of a circle were painted on five glass plates mounted on an electrically operated metal axis.
Rubber strips connected the axis to the motor. The experiment was no success. Three years later, Duchamp tried this experiment again, now using a turntable of a record player. He made a series of 'Disks Bearing Spirals' mounted on cardboard. The revolving disks produced a three-dimensional effect. The disks in 'Disks Bearing Spirals' were preliminary studies for Duchamp's second attempt to produce a three-dimensional film.
This time he just filmed rotating disks, alternating ten 'Optical Disks', based on the earlier 'Disks Bearing Spirals'. Nine of these disks were inscribed by puns, white letters pasted on black cardboard disks.
The texts, which we read from the outside inwards, involve complex word play that may, on certain if always instable readings, suggest to us a set of erotic scenarios. On one, let's call it a material level, Duchamp's film lives up to its name: Duchamp sharply bifurcates the film viewing activity into two: On another, let's call it a phenomenal level, the combined reading and viewing of silent films conventionally give rise to a third activity: It is what film semioticians term diegesis.
Anemic Cinema exposes, by its reduction, this third and paradoxically maximizing activity: And the film does this, amazingly enough, by dismissing mimesis.
The language of Anemic Cinema, provided we catch on to it, provokes us to conjure the space of a diegetic world that it refuses to show.
What it does show, between its spiraling puns, is the pulsation of those intervening spiraling abstract forms. To return, for a second, to 'Un chien Andalou', it is a film of superabundant mimesis, showing one mad event after another. It is also a film that notoriously renders constructing a coherent diegesis, in the sense of denotative narration, very unlikely.
Both films engender a striking disturbance of the lexical function of text-image relations that, by the s, seemed so secure. Anthology of surreal cinema. Volume 1 [South San Francisco]: Distribution 1 disc, 65 mins.
