This is a very very cool video. If you have a spare 10mins, I recommend you watch it.

Chris Jordan works consist of large-format, long-zoom artworks of some mind-blowing data about various US statistics.

His super-sized images picture some almost unimaginable statistics, from the astonishing number of paper cups we use every single day, to the amount of breast augmentation surgeries.

In his talk, he shows a few examples, and describes why he is obsessed by representing such anonymous, enormous statistics into a visual language that can be “felt”.
