Clever.  I'm guessing by rearranging and subtracting, the whole set shortens each time by an imperceptible amount.  It's still a 9X7 arrangement, but I'd like to see careful measurements comparing the before and after.

I can't but think it has something to do with that strange diagonal cut.

I was thinking, there were several camera cuts. If you ever watch a magic trick done online you always watch for cuts. Still neat, though.
