The 'GEORGEBUSH' that saw from side might be a 'DEBAUCHERY'.
The 'BARAKOBAMA' that saw from side might be a 'BANKRUPTCY'.

It's making shapes whose silhouette spells one word from one direction, and another word from another direction.

I see, I think. For some reason my brain rejects this application.

Thanks!

Combine this thread's concept with that of the trash shadow iotd, or the thousands of suspended color dots iotd.

I remember the trash shadow, so I think I get the concept...it's just that...the side of a letter is infinite points, wouldn't it be?

Not these letters. They're built to be manipulated.

I'm not sure what you mean. The letters are made up of spheres, whose circular silhouettes line up in different ways based on the viewing angle. In the screenshots, the greyer circles are spheres that are further away than the blacker ones.
