Optical Illusion

This small looped animation created an optical illusion.

After the animation starts, look away from the screen...
Then look back at the screen or look at the animation
from the corner of your eye

Are the hands spinning towards you or away from you?

Repeatedly looking away from the animation and back
at it usually makes the animated hands reverse their
apparent rotation, be patient and it will reverse...

I would have liked to have said I purposely set out to
create this illusion, unfortunately this wasn't the case
and was a happy accident!  

The wire-frame hands are in-fact only rotating towards
the screen !!

Marching hammers

Small looped animation of 'marching' hammers.
Inspired by the Pink Floyd music video "The Wall"

Generally I was pleased with the overall result, the loop
looks seamless and the marching hammers are
apparently infinite.
