    is to do your absolute best to sit against the same background in the same position for each photo. Still very cool though!

    I see what you did there.

      I thought about how it had to be a really chaotic transition so, in a sense, welcome to her world! It was a good suggestion upthread to pause the vid. It was interesting, though, how the tone changed in progression. Still flashing, but the brooding changed to joy.

      An unsuccessful shoe bomb attack resulted in nine years of inconvenience for every flier in the country. It would be nice to think [this diabolical act] might lead to some similar inconveniences. --mrblifil

      that makes the experimenting, shifting, flux of the process manifest, along with the continuity of the person and intent at the heart of the change. I thought it was very effective and moving in a way that a more systematic presentation would not be.
