What is this? Look closely. This isn't just an interesting abstract photo.

In fact, it's piles of paper bags, 1.14 million of them, the number used in the US every hour. Artist Chris Jordan has found a way to visualize the statistics of our over-consumptive society which penetrates in a way that hearing the bald statistics just doesn't. Perhaps you'll remember this image the next time the checker asks "paper or plastic?" and buy or bring a canvas one.
