Rotors - further development

I've been posting links to lots of these rotors lately and just wanted to elaborate a bit. I started sketching ideas for these about two months ago and keep coming up with more. They're meant to be viewed within the context of a screen and ideally as a group, hence the landing page above. Where a GIF or video can provide motion and repetition, I'm looking for more complex loops and variable interactions with the rotors. Also they all look like hell in IE.

3 pages

A note for viewers - in most browsers you can push F11 to see a webpage in fullscreen. A lot of these HTML pages look best that way. A tip for speeding up the animation if you have an older computer is to resize the browser window to be small. I use browser size-based positioning and scaling in pretty much everything I make to accommodate the many aspect ratios and resolutions I'm sure you all are using. Of course, you can't anticipate every resolution (if you're running three 1080p monitors or reading this off of a Gameboy you're out of luck).
