If I work with the basic armature of the object-that is, if I capture only the skeleton of the object, not the expression and the spoken word, I am, thanks to this expression reduction, a witness that, due to the absence of the mentioned components, the individual expressions are not completely legible. The gesture's credibility determines the quality of the message.
