This chart of evolutionary relationships contains a touch screen. Blank until activated, a short clip plays with each touch: a progression of wind-up toys either wobble their way across the stage, or morph one into the next. Jellyfish turn to snails turn to frogs, penguins, and bears. Humans are represented by the Venus of Willendorf, who then turns into a robot... which becomes a tamagotchi pet, which in turn becomes a jellyfish and then the whole cycle begins again.
