By tilting the video camera to an angle relative to the video projector that is an even divisor of the circle, extremely static imagery can result. In this case, the angle is 120 degrees, which divides the circle into three equal parts. Certain crystals also form structures with this geometry, the most beautiful examples of which are visible in snowflakes. These virtual crystalline structures seem to be torn by the forces of entropy at their extreme edges. Yet in the center, the formation seems almost immutable. Even with the strictly harmonious angle chosen there is a surprising organic edge to the lines that is far from random but much less regular than a normal flake of snow.
