A visit to the cinema during this period had changed the way Giacometti viewed the world and his art. He commented: "I began to see heads in the void, in the space which surrounds them. When for the first time I clearly perceived how a head I was looking at could become fixed, immobilized definitively in time, I trembled with terror as never before in my life and a cold sweat ran down my back. It was no longer a living head, but an object I was looking at like any other object, but no, differently, not like any other object but like something simultaneously living and dead. I gave a cry of terror as if I had just crossed a threshold, as if I was entering a world never seen before" (quoted in James Lord, Giacometti, A Biography, London, 1986, p. 258).
