This is an animation showing the "Brakhage Installs" machine, which generates an animation strongly reminiscent of the better films of Stan Brakhage.
Although it doesn't, really. It's just a bunch of polygons in a lit environment! Unless you count the effects generated in a simulation as effects, even after the simulation is recorded and can't be rerun. You know, Maya "upgrades" and shit.
Wait-- I think I probably did count them when I made this... why would I change my mind? Let me get back to you.
