Chris Jordan : Running the Numbers

by valrac4_a3kqdy

Chris Jordan is a Seattle-based photographer who quantifies consumption via images that reveal exactly how many products are bought or discarded in a given period of time, a minute, an hour, a day or a year. His photograph titled Plastic Bottles, for instance, depicts, as stated in its subtitle two million plastic beverage bottles, the number used in the US every five minutes.

The Simon Fraser University Gallery, Burnaby Campus presents Chris Jordan, Running the Numbers: An American Self-Portrait until December 17, 2010.
