The Wandering Circles

The flickering circles in this video appear to wander around randomly.  The circles are not moving (just flickering), but the shapes seem to drift whenever you do not look directly at the circles.  You can frame the circles with lines and they will still appear to move.  It is interesting to note that the more […]
