chris_jordon

Chris Jordan’s latest project, Running the Numbers, examines vast and bizarre measures of American society, in large intricately detailed prints assembled from thousands of smaller photographs.  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 28,000 42-gallon barrels, the amount of of oil consumed in the United States every two minutes (equal to the flow of a medium-sized river).
