Staggering U.S. Waste and Excess as Art

 In Business, Daily Life, Entertainment, Keep It Green, Lifestyle, Technology, What the...?!

My friend over at The Fate of Tyrlon (and other dubious things) pointed me to an interesting site he stumbled upon with the Stumble Upon toolbar. It’s on, a web site by Conde’ Nast, and it’s about how Chris Jordan uses staggering facts and figures about waste and excess in the United States and visually represents them with the objects in question.

It took me a minute to figure out what was actually going on, but if you will zoom in, you’ll see that each of these photos is made up of thousands or millions of items.

[This site requires Flash, so make sure you have that installed first. You probably do, but if nothing shows up, that’s what’s up.]

    That random thought brought to you by the Knights who say “Ni!”.
