In 1888, an East End clock tower was not only the beating heart of the then-industrial but also a constant operating machinery that created benefits for the upper classes by exploiting the lower classes.

A spherical structure clock tower whose shape remains the same no matter how it is rotated. Several levels in the structure visualize the heights of the four characters' social status or spirituality.
