The image of a closed roller shutter was synthesized from 300 identical video sequences. The 12 seconds of the starting material are continuously visible in the composite two-dimensional image. Arranged adjacently, the microstructural elements of this image merge to create the impression of a solid, coherent object. Slight movements of the camera cause the roller shutter to sway, though hardly noticeably. The tiny light slits between the slats are not transparent. The picture space remains opaque.
