Varying optical frequencies

I love the optical illusions and tensions created simply by varying the optical frequencies. I love the way the lines seemingly move through space by way of the repetition, and increase and decrease in speed. What a bitch to make. Props to Riley for her patience, vision, perseverance and skill.  

Here are some of her other pieces:
