Photographer Chris Jordan explores the phenomenon of American consumerism by making large-format, long-zoom artwork from the most mindblowing data. Cans Seurat depicts 106,000 aluminum cans in the form of George Seurat’s A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte; 106,000 being the number of cans used in the US every thirty seconds. Mindblowing indeed.
