 Bell #2. Kaleidoscope  Yellow bell gets thinner to show a marvelous kaleidoscope, that reflects sky, city lights and the citizen. As a giant piece of ice glass, the movement experience of the visitor will act as to be inside a big kaleidoscope, that expands its reflects all around the ground below.

 Bell #3 Xylophone  The blue bell acts as a giant interactive musical instrument, that captures the movements of the people, and transforms them into light and sound impulses, both amplified by the envolving mirror steel bell.
