This past week I've been thinking a fair amount about loyalty,
and wanted to put together a visualization that reflected some
of my thoughts. As I worked on it, as is usually the case, my
ideas and the visualization shifted somewhat at random, and
I ended up with an attempt at describing how human relationships
evolve, change, appear and disappear with the passage of time.
On first viewing this may seem like a rather pessimistic view
on relationships, but I really don't think it is. The animation is
running a ten frames a second, and if each frame is half a year
or a year, then the transience is less a threat than a companion.
