Chris Jordan is Running the Numbers

Chris Jordan is a photographic artist based in Seattle, Washington transforming everyday trinkets into artistic pieces of awareness. His work explores the phenomenon of American consumerism and waste. From large scale pieces made with packing peanuts depicting the amount of packages shipped by air every hour or painting 200,000 packs of cigarettes in the likeness of Van Gogh to show 200,000 people die every 6 months from smoking-Jordan is obviously making a bold statement of his intent.
