Depicts one million plastic cups, the number used on airline flights in the US every six hours.

Artist Chris Jordan creates artwork that uses statistics as a major part of it. Each image represents something in the world that we all should take note of. The photographs are beautiful and the statistics are fascinating. He hopes these images will make you think about how much we waste every day.

From Chris Jordan’s site, “This project visually examines these vast and bizarre measures of our society, in large intricately detailed prints assembled from thousands of smaller photographs. Employing themes such as the near versus the far, and the one versus the many, I hope to raise some questions about the role of the individual in a society that is increasingly enormous, incomprehensible, and overwhelming.”
