Signs of Life

Signs of Life is a series of short videos that isolate small movements in animals that serve as markers for the state of being “alive.” By drawing attention to the subject animal’s own consciousness, These pieces encourage us to think about what the animal is responding to and why, and to compare these responses to own visceral experience of being alive.
