I tried to make a pattern out of a variety of squares but once I realized it was hard to control a rotated square on loop, I decided to make a series of rectangles. I liked the effect which reminded me of downward steps due to the negative correlation so I decided to emphasize it by having the lines create a guided path/spotlight effect on the bottom of the “stairs”. My favorite part is how it implies motion while being static: even the “spotlight” fades out and disappears off the frame as it gets closer to you.
