A special thanks to BritboxMaker and Bridget Riley for sending me on this path.

Your welcome, Rick. These are really good, good spacial distortion with well registered patterns.

Well we’ve warped space, now to warp time as well. See you in 1976.

Excellent post.

Fantastic visual effects! I’d be concerned on cutting myself while getting dizzy!
