This paper consists of a presentation of two animations. Its basic objective is to investigate the design of continuous transformations, be it from a unique figure or from a set of figures. The first design is the transformation of a “sphere into a pseudosphere” by means of applying contraction – stretching. The second design can be thought of as a “faceted cube”, and it is made of square frames which are rotated to create an “exploding” view of the cube.
