Chris Jordan’s pictures of excess...

This TED talk was from last year but is an eye-opening look at statistics about consumption and excess.

Chris has a new exhibit called Running The Numbers II - Portraits of global mass culture which you can find photos of on his website.

Just over 11 minutes... and so very worth it.

The essence of this shatteringly provocative talk is to make meaning out of vast, fathomless statistics by rendering them into images; look at them, illustrated graphically, arrestingly and with the style and originality only an artist of Chris Jordan's caliber - only one with his vision, his wit and his profound sense of irony - can create.
