Multiple recursive effects experiment
All this started when I had this crazy idea for this funny experiment at glsl.heroku.com. The first one was http://glsl.heroku.com/e#886.0 followed by http://glsl.heroku.com/e#888.0. Later I found a way to do the recursive version and the first version was a small test with 2x2 effects and later adapted to the massive version.
Of course it's harder to navigate on the GLSL sandbox version because I am just getting a mouse.xy as input for my shader. The youtube video shows my adaptation of the 4x4 recursive effects shader on a PC application where you can freely move, zoom and rotate so that I can explore the effects and stare them from closer and even closer range.
I have an idea on how to extend this in the future and maybe release it as a standalone application or screesaver.
