From the author’s introduction: “For this experiment I wrote a program that drills a hole through a movie and extracts its core, metaphorically speaking. It’s much like what geologists do to examine layers of ice of a glacier to make conclusions about what the earth was like many thousand years ago. Similarly, many characteristics of a movie become apparent that way; such as length, usage of color, cut frequency or the amount of movement. It’s a new / different way of looking at moving images.”
