The orientation of the camera appears to change as you observe it. Both the left and right sides appear to be in front.

It changes its direction when you look at one side. Likewise, the opposite face changes direction if you look at it.

Another said, "Is it coming? Or going?" Then came the confused face emoji.

This creates the illusion that there are two types of movement.
