In this intimate portrait we see a pigeon enjoying the first rays of sunshine of the year. Because of the shifting shadows which are coming closer and closer, every now and then he moves a bit further, resulting from his needs to continue enjoying sun. His behaviour is a direct outcome of the natural physical conditions of its environment. His movements are parallel to the shifting shadows on the ground, so two natural processes coincide. The title refers literally to "turn on, move on, go on". This is reflected both in the living presence of the pigeon as well as in its displacement caused by the presence of the sun.
