Composed Decomposition

For our group's data set (Miroslav Azis, Franklin Gaw, Andrew Gillespie, and Helen Lam), we decided to visualize the time it takes for trash to decompose.  After reviewing everyone's initial concepts, we settled on a comedic approach to display the information.  We took  well-known historic figures as a reference to the time it took for a specific trash item to decompose.  The data we used were compiled by multiple sources, and it should be known that it is hard to find accurate data on the decomposition times of trash in landfills.  As Jill mentioned during the critics, different landfills implement different techniques in handling their trash (limiting oxygen, etc) so the decomposition times can vary between different locations.
