Warning: The Running the Numbers, An American Self-Portrait page contains nudity and controversial images, not suitable for all.
He does pictures to try to help visualize things and numbers that are often somehow too abstract for our minds to really portray, while drawing a sometimes shocking portrait of his society and more global phenomenons. It doesn't seem to be indicated where he took his numbers, so no real way to tell their accuracy offhand, but each of the projects has stunning pictures and a great motivation so I would recommend checking them all.

Chris Jordan's art is interesting! Though how about a warning 'cos of the Abu Grahib pictures he used in 1 of his art pieces? And yes, his art is very thought-provoking in terms of environmentalism: though I do economise use of water, paper and many other things, I think I'm fairly guilty of waste 'cos my entire family uses the computers a lot everyday.
Olympus's The PEN Story, made for the release of their new PEN camera (and its 50th anniversary), is an amazing piece of work... I post the vid below, but the link leads to the YouTube page for it to be seen in higher resolution.
This is the PEN Story in stop motion. We shot 60.000 pictures, developed 9.600 prints and shot over 1.800 pictures again. No post production! Thanks to all the stop motion artists who inspired us. We hope you enjoy :-)
