An Illusion of Spin

I used three things to make this: Geometer’s Sketchpad (to make one black and white version; the whole thing is made of semicircles), MS-Paint (to color the six different versions which appear here), and the website http://www.makeagif.com (to assemble the six separate still images into one .gif file, with the illusion of motion). The surprising thing to me was how fast the process was, once I had the idea of my goal for a finished product.
