We reimagined tax dollars as glowing particles and areas of government spending as gravity wells. Users' tax dollars stream onto the screen as particles, which are then grabbed by budget functions and forced into orbits around them. Importantly, the relative screen area and number of particles taken by each budget function are directly proportional to allocated dollar amounts.

Implemented completely in HTML, CSS, and Javascript using the element. Runs best in Chrome.
