Photographic Arts – An American Self-Portrait

Posted Friday, January 16, 2009 by SixSevenEightNine in Labels: ,

Oil Barrels, 2008Depicts 28,000 42-gallon barrels, the amount of of oil consumed in the United States every two minutes (equal to the flow of a medium-sized river).

Plastic Bottles, 200760x120"Depicts two million plastic beverage bottles, the number used in the US every five minutes

Mind blowing. Numbers. Art. Social commentary. Chris Jordan conjures up these stunning imageries to raise questions about the roles and responsibilities of the individual in a society.
Light Bulbs, 200872x96"Depicts 320,000 light bulbs, equal to the number of kilowatt hours of electricity wasted in the United States every minute from inefficient residential electricity usage (inefficient wiring, computers in sleep mode, etc.).
