Out of a five hour video recording of the traffic in front of a cinema I choose an exemplary part of three minutes. The single frames of this scene were analyzed by special developed software and compared to the other frames of the rest of the material. The program seeks for similar forms in front of the stagnant background. All frames of the selected sequence were substituted by the respective best correlating frame of the rest of the material. The result is a three minutes street scene which is pulsing like an old silent movie. The illusion of a continuous action appears although the spectator can see that this is combination of different times.
