Can You Picture Millions of Bottles? Now You Can – by Rebecca Mayer

We’ve published stories about many artists using plastic garbage to make art.  We think Chris Jordan takes “found art” to the next level.  Jordan’s goal is to take the obscure numbers we toss around (millions and billions) and make it visual and tangible.  We are, after all, a visual culture.

Check out more of Jordan’s images here.

'Cans Seurat' by Chris Jordan. The image is made up of 106,000 aluminum cans, the number used every 30 seconds in the US. http://minnesota.publicradio.org
