TED Tuesday…Chris Jordan: Picturing excess

June 24, 2008

“I have this fear that we aren’t feeling enough as a culture…we’ve lost our sense of outrage, our anger and our grief about what’s going on in our culture…What I’m trying to do with my work is to take these numbers from the raw language of data, and translate them into a more universal visual language that can be felt…My belief is If we can feel these issues more deeply, then they will matter more to us than they do now. And if we can find that then we will be able to find with in us what we need to find to face the big question…

How do we change?”
