Following Bergson, Deleuze describes the assemblage of executed and moving images as a mechanism of the universe – a ‘metacinema’ (C1: 59). Deleuze stresses how we can consider every single image that we can imagine – and those we cannot – as made by movement, movements of ‘interatomic influences’, atoms, molecules, our bodies, brains, eyes, as all pervasive, and which shape ‘an infinite set’ (C1: 58–59). In other words, the image is a dynamic entity, as he shouts at us in 1983, ‘IMAGE = MOVEMENT’ (C1: 58, original caps).
The camera itself contains many mechanisms that move (whether digital or analogue): the lens focus must move and adjust itself; the camera may follow movement of things around; a fixed camera may record movement between things; a camera may follow action very slowly or very rapidly; the camera’s movements and effects can engage mental movement with very slight effort, creating sensorial, cognitive, intellectually, psychologically triggered neurological and physical movements – this is a ‘properly cinematographic Cogito’ (C1: 74; see chapter 5 Perception).
This is the machinic nature of the cultural assemblage of a film: machinic not in the sense of the mechanist dimensions of the cinematic, but in the sense of the cinematic body as a social, living system (l’agencement machinique des images-mouvement) (C1: 59; Deleuze 1983b: 88). This is a position of defining film as formed through process; a ‘machinic assemblage’ (ibid. original emphasis). 44 Deleuze and Cinema What are the Frame, Shot and Cut?
