Das Kapital. The Capital-Scene. Reconstruct the 3D coordinates of the 2D points that are tracked... to Temporary autonomous Zones...Wireframe? Quickshade? Realistic? Segment Memory in limited region. Surface without control, points or handles. Commands less destructive. Big brains in the selection and elimination The Ghost of the executed Engineer. Techniques are used as optical devices that do shape another view on the phenomena to express. If could the images-commodities themselves speak, they would say: "What does belong to us as objects is our Value. Our natural intercourse as commodities proves it.  In the eyes of each other we are nothing but exchange-values." The images are related with reconstructed models in 3D, tunnels, vegetables-loops, and centrifugal architectures.
