And since, for Bergson, time is fundamentally change, there would be no time. Yet everywhere the universe presents an image of change as evolution, an open-ended process of self-differentiation. Thus Deleuze, following Bergson, redefines the whole as that which prevents any set -- no matter how small or large, intensive or extensive -- from being truly closed. This is why time is anterior to space and why absolute movement gives the form of change as prior to any expression of spatial form. " Understanding what Idea is presented by montage means defining what unity informs all of the parts as a measure of the openness of the whole, or in what way the whole is considered to be open as the measure of time.
Rather, the whole is the Open, or "that which prevents each set, however big it is, from closing in on itself, and that which forces it to extend itself into a larger set" ( Movement-Image16). This idea provides another important distinction. Relative movement is inherently spatial. The implied out-of-field adds one space to another: the unfolding of space in camera movement; the succession of shots in editing; or the subsumption of shots or sequences into larger parts. In any case, movement is defined by physical space as content, a geometry of spatial segments that can be added, divided, or multiplied as you wish.
In -42whatever form or combination they take-acoustic, graphic, visual-signs must emerge or be deduced from images. If the foundation of this semiotic is the forming of movement -images as a signaletic material, what is the logic of this forming? Deleuze finds intriguing Pasolini's insistence that there is indeed something like double articulation in the cinema. These articulations are not linguistic, however. Rather, they are aspects or facets of the movement-image, considered in itself as "real" movement, in the mobile relation between wholes and sets.
