Last month we highlighted Chris Jordan's "Denali Denial" from his latest body of work that visualizes otherwise unfathomable statistics about contemporary American culture. If you haven't already perused his website, this is a reminder to check out it out; Jordan's arrangements transform the dizzying numbers into serene patterns. "Cans Seurat" (pictured) uses an image of 106,000 aluminum cans—the amount consumed in the U.S. every 30 seconds—to reproduce the famous painting.
