Chris Jordan Pictures: Consumer Fractals of America

Massive cellphone spiral wave (world technovortex into itself).
Chris Jordan is an american artist who explores the "vast and bizarre measures of our society" weaving distance into fractal: "near vs far" or the pounding methamorphosis of molecules into mountains. "I hope to raise some questions about the role of the individual in a society that is increasingly enormous, incomprehensible, and overwhelming".

Bizzare city assembled of circuitry-boards as blocks of slumming dystopian urbanity.

Depicts two million plastic beverage bottles, the number used in the US every five minutes.

"Running the Numbers looks at contemporary American culture through the austere lens of statistics".

Depicts 32,000 Barbies, equal to the number of elective breast augmentation surgeries performed monthly in the US in 2006.

Depicts one hundred million toothpicks, equal to the number of trees cut in the U.S. yearly to make the paper for junk mail.
