Linear tranformation animation

(Visualization of linear maps)
A closed curve T(t) in the space of linear transformation can be visualized by looking at the image T(t) X of a dodecahaedron, where each point experiences the same transformation. When projecting the object onto planes, one can observe "shadows" of the transformation in two dimensions.
