normals vortex rearrangement

Black-and-white reconfiguration of a lolumad GIF.

The spheres, originally blue-purple, were cropped, stretched, and enlarged. The background was transparentized, then everything was converted to black and white in the Online Image Editor, which has a great (as in retro and unpredictable) algorithm for converting color gifs to pointillist monochromes.

The next phase will be to reverse the motion to eliminate the jump when the GIF resets.
