Possibilities for Dynamic Heddle weaving

Pat Old from Tauranga sent me a couple of links off the web of weaving created by a very skilled weaver called Peter Collingwood. He made some modifications to a large loom that I understand were  quite complicated. He was able to achieve the following effects that he called "microgauzes".

Looking at what is happening here, it looks like this would be very simple on the Dynamic Heddle Loom, simply slid the segments in and out of the heddle, switch them, rotate them, the possibilities look endless! I know Donyale Grant at Moggy and Me is very excited to experiment with this technique.
