Hello Anny and everyone -
The signer appears to me to be doing a Hinge Finger Motion, from the
Knuckle Joint, like the opening and closing of a door. Because the
signer has such amazing fingers...very flexible and big and almost
double-jointed...it is hard to see this. I can see why you might
think the movement was from the Middle Joint, but I believe, like
Shane mentioned, that the motion must be from the Knuckle Joint like
the sign for Crab in ASL...
So if it were from the Middle Joint...those would have been dark dots
like you wrote, Anny...but the Hinge Motion are those tiny little
Also, for me, it looked like he was touching his chest each time, but
not Rubbing...Rub means continual-contact that never leaves the chest
at all but he was doing a touch-touch-touch I believe...
See attached illustration...my writing is in your French-Swiss
