Chris Jordan Exhibit: Museum of Science
I went to the Museum of Science, Boston yesterday and the standout for me was the exhibit by Chris Jordan called "Running the Numbers." Jordan makes photographs and prints to illustrate overconsumption and waste. One of things he tries to do is give us a visceral experience of numbers we hear every day associated with waste but can't really intellectually grasp. For example, one of his prints illustrates 2 million plastic beverage bottles, the number Americans use every five minutes. It's pretty scary. I guess in a good way. Go check out the exhibit if you have a chance but he also has a book out and you can visit his website here.
