The flicker effect on some of these when I scroll the page on my MacBook's LCD is fun, and reminds me of the flourescent flickers you've been capturing recently. Was it your intention to draw a comparison between the two?

Ian, entirely.

I'm actually quite a believer in Gysin's theory that flickering light (or in my iterations, optically buzzing fields) can be useful in acheiving transformative states. I think these effects are related to my Phosphenes work as well.

I've found that even better than straight-up scrolling, is dragging around your browser window. At least with my refresh rate, and my Mac LCD, the strobing is much more pronounced. I've been working on animated versions which will emerge later--they replicate an effect similar to that which the Fandango clip has even in this static version.

holy shit. dragging the window around makes them do more than twitter--they actually *change color*. esp the b+w ones, which look purplegreenblue. the pleasure of it is kind of like the magic of that castle that colorizes itself:
