Economy + art = fantastic

The artist Blake Fall-Conroy created this fantastic machine to represent the state of the economy in the US right now. When you turn the lever, it delivers a one-pence coin every 4.97 seconds. This equates to the minimum salary of $7.25 an hour (current minimum salary in the US).

I like that it's not judgmental or doesn't have a "message" - it's just factual. That's why probably it will be liked more by the engineering types (like moi).

Did you like it?
