Lifejacket Cruft (Prospero's Prism)

This cruft image is created using a sequence of images captured from a closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera positioned in a barn looking at cattle. An image is collected from the United States Air Force website, and with the images from the farm, an animated composite is made.

But how is it
That this lives in thy mind? What seest thou else
In the dark backward and abysm of time?
If thou remember'st aught ere thou camest here,
How thou camest here thou mayst.

Prospero, scene ii
