A long tunnel led from the building dealing with imagination and ideas to the department of new metal alloys.

Every day Jan Barker walked through this tunnel it was as though it was the first time. The tunnel had been so well designed to create just this experience, for it was though it would help people conjure up more formulas for yet more new alloys.

It worked. Or so the prolific output of the Institute of the New and Significant would imply.

Quotas if they had been used, would have been exceeded monthly, let alone yearly.

The institute was considered the most desirable place to work, and this included jobs like cleaner, waste disposal operative…any position was much valued and found so rewarding by the fortunate person engaged in it.

The director of the institute was also a composer, singer and juggler.

It seems her juggling hobby helped her juggle responsibilities and tasks, moving easily between high technology projects and artistic ventures.

Can you imagine working there?
