Big Freeze for GlassWorlds

(by the composer himself)

As a Kaleidoscope that operates on the principle of multiple reflection, 
mirrors create and duplicate images of the objects
Arbitrary and symmetrical clouds as an initial abstract design 
like a basic form that exhibit similar characteristics at every level
A player looks inside the clouds..
Objects as clouds is applied and are transformed
Differents possibilities of geometry appear and the design structures 
are incorporate like new elements that always change their length in time
