US Waste as Art

I was doing some cool hunting and stumbled upon Chris Jordan. With all of the talk about the environment in general, but also about the use of plastic bags on sites like Scrappy's blog at Dominomag, I figured this was pretty relevant.

He remakes famous works of art using specific numbers of certain items that are consumed by Americans each day. Check out his site here for more information. Apparently the US consumes 60,000 plastic bags every 5 seconds! Geez, I'm switching to paper!
Close up of bags:The US also consumes 106,000 aluminum cans every 30 seconds.
