The Bridge With Kaleidoscope Eyes

I wrote a few weeks back about the renovation of the 14th Street Bridge. It's being resurfaced. But the unusual element of the rehab is the bridge tender's house, the hexagonal tower halfway across the span. It's being fitted with a massive kaleidoscope.

Designer Mikyoung Kim sent me this photo of one of the units going into one of the tower's windows:

The kaleidoscope should be finished, and the switch thrown for the first time, in about two weeks.
