Moiré Patterns:

Moiré Woodpecker

The moiré woodpecker is a pattern designed to simulate the movement of a woodpecker. As the lines of the parallel grid move across the woodpecker pattern, an alternating series of images appears to resemble the movement.

Use the alternating "Manual" and "Auto" button below to control whether the grid moves on its own (Auto), or whether you control movement (Manual).
