We used a 10 ° flexion in two volumes, in order to Maintain a common language Among Themselves. The implementation of bending, runs one of the volumes in ict horizontal axis, and the vertical axis --other in ict. This gesture has created remote positioning to a formal level entre les two block, ALLOWING-have HOWEVER Several readings volumes. These volumes broad Almost blind, Provides you a very strong image.
Between the "bodies" happens the entry, Where highlights, through a sectioning of the volume on the horizontal axis.
