Hellish Beauty

I listen to audio casts whenever I have to be in my internal combustion, gas-consuming beastie.
Lately I've been downloading Air America's Ecotalk. Last week they featured photographer Chris Jordan. The pictures tell the story best, but his work focuses on bringing to light the environmental destruction of our consumerism. He visits sites where the debris of planned obsolescence piles up: the mountains of cell phones, cars, circuit boards and such. Often the number of objects mirrors the number of these items that are thrown away every day. His images are wonderously shocking, and point the finger back at us for the responsibility.
