movie for SIGNINGS deals with the ability of perception.
The video shows only a single object on the screen. Most of the time the object remains nearly immobile, except, and this might be an interpretation, one kind of breathing, but suddenly the object turns around itself, in any direction – an "outbreak" of motion. Then it stops, and remains breathing as it did before. It is pretty sure to miss the start of the movement, it only lasts a very short moment and follows in an irregular repetition.
