The Culture: GSV fields

From the Iain M. Banks Culture science-fiction novels.
Tests for fields effect.
The biggest spaceships in the Culture (General System Vehicles) are often described as blurry oblong force fields. Not very entertaining. So it tried to figure out how to represent a GSV when it actually wants to be seen, showing its hull and fields like a peacok deploying its feathers. I consider this GSV design obsolete now.
