Star signs

While experimenting with Processing and some basic OpenGL I created some stills reminding me of star signs. I started of with 2D graphics and dots improving the visual appearance with OpenGL. Later on I switched to the third dimension. In P3D mode I dropped OpenGL and replaced the initial circles with cuboids appearing in space.

The rotation of the matrix can be controlled with the mouse position. The inspiration for that functionality originated from a fairly old blogpost I read about how to rotate a cube.
