Chris Jordan Has His Way with Statistics

Earlier this year, we told you about photographer Chris Jordan‘s keynote presentation at the Greener Gadgets conference in New York City. A few weeks after that event, Jordan (who we’ve described as “an eco-warrior version of Andreas Gursky“) addressed the 2008 Technology, Entertainment, Design (TED) conference crowd, presenting his “portraits of American mass consumption” that help people to wrap their brains around staggering statistics such as the 40 million paper cups used daily. Stand back from one of his works depicting the number of people who die from cigarettes and its 400,000+ tiny cigarette boxes form “Skull with Cigarette” the 1886 Van Gogh painting that also happens to grace the Chip Kidd-designed cover of David Sedaris‘s new book, When You Are Engulfed in Flames. Below we’ve posted the newly released video of Jordan’s TEDTalk.
