interprets various phases of business activity and shows how they are interrelated and interdependent; it dramatizes the problems of production, distribution and consumption. Here an animated mural projected onto a huge cyclorama visualizes the vast complex of activity set in motion all over the country by every act of consumption such as traveling, the eating of food, and purchase of clothes. As a result of careful synchronization, you see one central action, while being aware of other action taking place at the same time. The action of a woman powdering her nose, for example, starts off a whole series of activities involving great and small industries and an army of workers in mine, factory, warehouse, office, and store, and on railroads, steamships, trucks, and delivery wagons. Other equally commonplace acts of consumers arouse similar activities that are ultimately very complex. To the accompaniment of a musical score and the voice of a commentator, the scenes are shown on a screen that curves in a great arc, giving you a sense of actual participation in the drama enacted before your eyes.
Neat! We’d love to see it… Have you seen anything like it? Let us know!
