Chris Jordan: turning powerful statistics into art

Artist and photographer Chris Jordan portrays our culture through supersized images that capture almost unimaginable statistics.

Jordan's work shows the power and potential of art in telling stories that are unlikely to be thoroughly understood – or to make a difference – as long as they are only told by science journals. Science is good, but more than science is needed for reaching out to meaningfully large audiences. Such endeavour takes imagination and creativity, as well as someone able to convey the message in a passionate way.

See how passionate and creative Jordan can be in the 11-min presentation that can be watched HERE.
