…[Y]ou cannot see Jum-Jum always with the same attention, at the same speed. I’m showing a repetitive movement: Dore on a swing, cut after every fourth frame, put into a contingent order. Two movements interfere with each other: the natural swing movement and the artificial jumping caused by the quick montage. The jumping is the effort the spectator has to do, to combine or to see the speed of the rhythm against the speed of the rhythm of the sound. One concentrates on this vibrating visual effect at first, then one isn’t that concentrated anymore and looks around on the screen and discovers other things. So the perception of the film changes, although I have seen it so many times.
