0.4 Data zoom
Photographer Chris Jordan creates tangible visual statistics – to explain otherwise incomprehensible data.

….His super-sized images picture some almost unimaginable statistics, from the astonishing number of paper cups we use every single day, to the amount of breast augmentation surgeries. In his talk, he shows a few examples, and describes why he is obsessed by representing such anonymous, enormous statistics into a visual language that can be “felt”.
