This scratch project explores how the eye sees shapes during an animation. To play, press the space bar and move your mouse along the x axis. The farther away from the origin you are, the faster the animation will move. The same way that a car wheel appears to reotate backwards at high speeds, you will see various embedded shapes depending on the speed of rotation.
