A detailed Youtube video of the project and my presentation may be selected below.

This is a custom project for four floors of the Cincinnati Childrens Hospital expansion.

It contains 20 kaleidoscopes, with 10 individual mirror arrangements having 2,3 or 4 mirrors.

Scopes will be in groups of five per floor. Each group of scopes viewing a portion of a rotating six foot diameter back-lit art glass object wheel.
