Note "starting with my photo of a rainbow, i make a series of copies of the image, with each new image 10 degrees further along the “hue” spectrum (as defined by photoshop) from the prior image, repeating this process through the 360 degree hue spectrum (as defined by photoshop), with the final image 10 degrees on the hue spectrum from the original image. i line these up in sequence across the 36 inch sheet of paper that i print on, creating multiple rows to trace through the hue variations. i print these on a big piece of paper, cut them into strips, and fold them into an accordion, seaming multiple panels to create tiny, 72-page cascading accordions. that may be played, ... somewhat like a cross between a flipbook and a slinky.""--Artist's website (viewed on June 20, 2017)
