The main idea of the Motorceptor Series is to eliminate all static visual information from a moving image. This is obtained by using a fixed camera angle during the shooting and is then edited using a subtractive process, only showing the difference between one frame and the next.
This process is analogous to the work carried out by specific neural modules in the brain that specialize in discerning and isolating information about movement that occurs in the external environment.
