Common Sense [commonsense-art.com] is a nicely crafted art exhibit examining the most important aspects that determine the American Dream. Through a collection of 13 different data-driven works, the exhibit questions assumptions about the history of the U.S, shows the common goals and dreams of its citizens and illuminates some of the inequalities in U.S. society.
For instance, the "Dow Jones Industrial Infantry" visualizes the size of the 30 companies through little green army men, and compares their human scale to their market capitalization, or total value, of their stock. "Slice of the Pie" is a physical pie chart showing the true relative sacrifice each household makes. Some pieces require a magnifying glass to be truly perceivable. "Styrofoam Cups, Champagne Glasses" highlights the ratio between the average salary and the average CEO salary in America. "Investing in the Future" is a wooden puzzle of US states, of which the height denotes the percent of each state's median income goes toward funding public education.
