Running the numbers...

Pain Killers 2007

In his exhibition Running the Numbers, Seattle photographer Chris Jordan looks at contemporary American culture through the austere lens of statistics. With each image portraying a specific quantity of something: fifteen million sheets of office paper (five minutes of paper use); 106,000 aluminium cans (thirty seconds of can consumption) Running the Numbers provides a starkly sobering view of modern consumerism. Hop on over here for more details and the ability to zoom into each image.
