"Lightbulbs" by Chris Jordan
by sabine7 / September 11, 2009

Chris Jordan's Running the Numbers series continues with new work, including Lightbulbs. This photo collage represents the 320,000 lightbulbs that equal the number of kilowatt hours of electricity wasted in the US per minute, due to inefficient household electricity use. Jordan's work is a frightening wake-up call that is based on waste, consumerism, planned obsolescence and the ravages to our environment. The work consists of large, detailed prints put together by using thousands of tiny photographs. The importance of the individual among the collective is made visually clear, and the sheer overwhelming nature of these problems cannot be escaped.
