The subway tunnels are painted with swooping moiré line-patterns. The windows of the train are then covered with an identical pattern of black stripes.

       I need moire information before I can decide on this. A link would be helpful.

       I think the tunnels should have go-faster stripes.

       Lines that are spaced at increasingly smaller rates to make it look like the train is speeding up, with lights that are sequenced the opposite direction?
