This flag animation is the complementary colors of the American Flag. Stare at the numbers as the count up to 20. This will saturate your eye's rods and cones with orange, green, and black. When the time is up it will flip to a blank white slide where you will see an after image of red, white and blue (complementary colors).
Alice, from Alice in Wonderland, falls down a rabbit hole. Look at how she appears to change in size to create the illusion of depth. Our falling animation is similar. We will be large in the foreground and smaller in the background. We will spin one way while our color wheel op art spins the other way (clockwise or counter clockwise).
