In "Time Machine" (2007), the screenplay for a ninety-minute film is running across the screen in tight rows. It is based on the 1895 novel "The Time Machine" by H. G. Wells, but the displayed script was never filmed and thus never visualised. In this way, the work itself becomes a “still” that evokes the viewer’s own images.
