Vary fascinating behind-the-scenes look, thanks! There is a passage in Mark Danielewski's "House of Leaves" which only has one word per page for about 20 pages, but of course that wouldn't have the instantaneousness of your animation, since the pages would still have to be flipped. The passage did have a very rushed sense of urgency, though; I know of no other literary antecedent to your story. Will be looking forward to whatever you cook up next!
