Communication as data transfer of technical equipment can resemble the human nature in a frighteningly way. Someone utters something and another perceives it – but mostly blurred. But misinterpreting must not lead to confusion, e.g. like a scanner that interprets movies which are reproduced through a LCD projector. Its own perception exceeds our own viewing habits. Suddenly, movements, number and length of cuts, colour mood and brightness become visible from a new perspective.
