TED | Picturing Excess

Before you check out the TED video, go here for late breaking typographic-economic news.

Seattle-based photographic artist, Chris Jordan, does an amazing job of showing us why we can’t use disposable cups any more. He creates  arresting (and artistic)  images of mass consumption to visually communicate the excess in our culture and the consequences of our unconscious behaviors.  Barbies,  prison uniforms, cigarettes. He’s found a way to use them all.

And the paper cups? 40 million a day. And yes, now I am paying attention.
