Artist Chris Jordan shows us a surprising view of Western culture, in this energizing look at numbers so big, we simply don’t (or can’t) think about them. His supersized images picture unimaginable statistics — like the astonishing number of paper cups we use every single day. (Recorded February 2008 in Monterey, California. Duration: 11:14.)
