It’s a new experience for visitors on the 94th floor of the John Hancock Tower, where for just $5 you get to stand on an enclosed glass and steel platform and get tilted for a unique perspective of the city’s Magnificent Mile.

See what happens if we substitute the pelicans with people.
While locals were eagerly awaiting the start of the swimming season on Lake Michigan, it was impossible to ignore the oil spill disaster happening in the Gulf of Mexico. The affect it has had on wild life, like the pelicans. How would it look if people were drenched in oil?
On the shores of Lake Michigan, Chicago based photographer, Jane Fulton Alt started taking pictures of people drenched in an oil-like fluid as part of the Crude Awakening project.
While doing the shoot, more people asked if they could participate, including families together, standing on the beach, covered in the oil substitute.
