This interactive, kinetic sculpture acts as a giant magnifying glass, except sunbeams pour through the colored lens as the viewer swivels the rings into position to catch the light, casting a stained-glass reflection on the ground or anything else it hits. Magnify instantly becomes an educational tool as it demonstrates the concepts of transparency, light reflection, and refraction, even the physics of mobility with its rotating top.
