Chris Jordan is an artist and cultural activist whose work explores contemporary mass culture. In Running the Numbers he looks at contemporary western culture through statistics. Each large scale image portrays a specific quantity of something: two million plastic bottles (five minutes of bottle consumption in the U.S.), 106,000 aluminum cans (thirty seconds of our can consumption), as a way to alter our understanding, and our actions.
