Here's an experimentation that turned into something pretty. I don't know yet if it could be usefull for something, but I like very much the effect :

Spiral expansion (fluid-like motion) :

Now, try these ressources instead (just replace the files with the new ones). The effect is better looking and the code is simpler :
