This animation leads the viewer through a virtual gallery. The opening image represents the gallery’s entrance. In the first room, the pictures on the walls represent the exhibition space they are hung in. By clicking on one of the pictures, the viewer enters another room, identical to the first but different in color and shown from a different perspective. One can wander through this endless gallery indefinitely. Upon exiting the room, the viewer finds himself where he began, facing the gallery’s entrance, but with everything in mirror image.
