Verbrauch in Amerika

Chris Jordan hat in dieser Serie "Running the Numbers - An American Self-Portrait" die amerikanische Kultur durch statistische Werte des Verbrauchs unterschiedlicher Gebrauchsgegenstände visualisiert.
"Statistics can feel abstract and anesthetizing, making it difficult to connect with and make meaning of 3.6 million SUV sales in one year, for example, or 2.3 million Americans in prison, or 410,000 paper cups used every fifteen minutes. This project visually examines these vast and bizarre measures of our society, in large intricately detailed prints assembled from thousands of smaller photographs. " > Bildergalerie
