Art From Waste: Chris Jordan



I stumbled upon Chris Jordan's work last year and sent it around to friends.  I just went back to his site and was completely blown away again.  Running The Numbers, An American Self-Portrait is the work.  It "looks at contemporary American culture through the asustere lens of statistics.  Each impage protrays a specific quantity of something.  Statistics canfeel abstract and aneshtetizing, making it difficult to connect with and mke meaning of 3.6 million SUV sales in one year, or 2.3 million Americans in prison, or 32,000 breast augmentation surgeries in the U.S. every month."
