"Cans Seurat," 2007

As much as it might look like painter Georges Seurat's "A Sunday on la Grande Jatte--1884," this artwork, too, is an homage. For a series dealing with U.S.-only statistics, Chris Jordan made this digital collage of photos depicting 106,000 aluminum cans--the amount used in the United States every thirty seconds, according to Jordan.
