"Slow motion apocalypse"

Here's a site discovered merely because it was up on the computer at Andrea's where I'm poaching time. Chris Jordan's photography:

From his site: "The immense scale of our consumption can appear desolate, macabre, oddly comical and ironic, and even darkly beautiful; for me its consistent feature is a staggering complexity.

The pervasiveness of our consumerism holds a seductive kind of mob mentality. Collectively we are committing a vast and unsustainable act of taking, but we each are anonymous and no one is in charge or accountable for the consequences."
