Beautiful Ugly Trash by Cam

I came across a link to this site today: Chris Jordan’s Running the Numbers art exhibit. As the disclaimer on his site indicates, I’m sure that the full impact of these works is only when viewing them in person. Nevertheless, looking at the work on line will really make you think about your consumption patterns. The photos are beautiful; the trash is ugly; our actions that make these statistics, in many ways, are uglier still.

You can also view this trailer: Chris Jordans Intolerable Beauty DVD trailer from Yvonne Stoose on Vimeo.

This is great (and depressing). Thanks for sharing.

Emily — I couldn’t figure out how to embed the video. I thought I had it but I realized afterwards the the link wasn’t working. Do you know how to get the video link?

Comment by Cam

Cam, sorry. I’m no good at that sort of thing. I just looked at the pictures.

Thanks for the link. Jordon is doing some amazing things. There were several that gave me chills.
