distance function videos
A collection of videos created by coloring pixels based on some function of the set of distances from that pixel to each of a set of moving particles. Generally, the particles move linearly at constant speed.
There is a bit of variety in these videos and I'm curious what other possibilities for visual effects there are using this method.

Albums
There are 25 videos in this album. Albums make it easy to organize a collection of videos. They can be used to display videos together, or sent to friends as a playlist. You can even arrange the order of videos in each album.
You can add a video to one of your albums or create a new album from the "+Add to…" tab on video pages.
Albums can also be used to show videos on other web sites using Vimeo Widgets.
