i couldn't help but pass on this link to the group. it shows some of the most engaging and informative art that i have seen in recent memory. it is also an ingenious way to graphically display frequently benign numbers that we are shown in the media, school, etc.

Consumption rates at such large scale are hard to fathom. Nice collection! Would be great for an ad agency to use them for public campaign.
I esp liked the Denali logo/SUV one - wow. Thanks
