Kimberly sent me this link yesterday to trash art on the New York Times Web site. Check out artist Chris Jordan’s work. He photographs massive and painstakingly organized quantities of stuff, like plastic cups, cell phones, Barbies or folder prison uniforms. At a glance the pictures look like abstract art, zooming in, they make a painful statement about consumption, like this image of 60,000 plastic bags.
