I've posted some of Chris Jordan's images here before, but here is a video of him talking about his work at TED in February 2008.

Chris Jordan runs the numbers on modern American life -- making large-format, long-zoom artwork from the most mindblowing data about our stuff.Thanks to Ben Fry for posting this on his site.
Here's a glimpse of Chris Jordan's current project in-progress on the island of Midway Atoll (http://www.midwayjourney.com/).
