Sergei Eisenstein believed that montage (juxtaposing images by
film editing) could have an impact not found in the individual
images. Two or more images together create a "tertium quid"
(third thing) that makes the whole greater than the sum of its
individual images by means of macro / micro patterns and
associations.

Pseudomorphosis
The concept of pseudomorphosis, which describes a
mineral having the characteristic outward form of another
species, or the state of having, or the property of taking, a
crystalline form unlike that which belongs to the species,
is one that Oswald Spengler introduces as a way of
explaining cultures. Specifically pseudomorphosis entails
the appropriation of any deeply ingrained formal system
for purposes different from those it was initially used for.
