An American Self Portrait

Chris Jordan makes artwork using many small things put together to give a visual representation of American culture. This image is just a fraction of the actual piece which represents the 100+ thousand cans of soda consumed by Americans every 30 seconds.

Intolerable Beauty

We could stop drinking so much soda, we could use canvas shopping bags, we could buy a Prius instead of a Denali. In America that is just what we do not. We do diabetes, pollution, and huge carbon footprints. Seeing it in a visual context though made me realize that perhaps this is all getting a little out of control.
