Artist Chris Jordan

Cans Seurat, 2007
60x92" archival inkjet print

Artist Chris Jordan created this version of Seurat's masterpiece using 106,000 aluminum cans, the amount of cans used in the United States every thirty seconds. (Thirty seconds!!! Can you imagine?!?!?)


This is from a series of works created by Jordan called "Running the Numbers: an American Self-Portrait," in which the artist illustrates the unbelievable numbers behind the statistics of life in America.

The rest of Chris Jordan's website is worth a look, too!
