New exhibits!

Our first two exhibits, all finished!

>The Dow Jones Industrial Infantry: visualizes the size of the thirty companies on the Dow Jones Industrial Index through platoons of little green army men. We also added the market capitalization (market value) of each company --- even with over 2,000,000 employees, Wal-Mart isn't worth as much as Microsoft.

>CEO Salary or Average Salary: visualizes the change in the ratio between CEO salaries and average salaries from 1965 to 2005, through champagne glasses and styrofoam cups. As you can see, things have changed significantly.

If nothing else, we've got a future in cruise-ship-party-planning. Next week: Ice sculptures.

American Inventions / Trophies

Just picked these up today, they'll be used in our exhibit of American Inventions. Each trophy will be topped with an influential object developed in the USA, painted gold of course.
Incredibly excited for this one. See you in 35 days!
