Linguistic summary of Operation Castle – cinematographic documentation of nuclear tests in America, 1954. An attempt at analysis and description of a moving picture with available machine methods. The submitted template for linguistic summary has been based on video mining algorithms which analyse the picture at technical level. In the future, full analysis of moving pictures – both on technical and symbolic, more abstract level – will be realizable. The hermeneutic characteristics of the video matter has been sustained. Operation Castle is a study of political and technological development and of peripheral perception.
