Space Talk

Last night I gave a talk at Space Furniture about Design Leading Sustainability.

Here are some of the sites people were interested in.

Chris Jordan is an amazing artists who shows a visual representation of statistics that are quite mind blowing. His Running the Numbers series
shows things like how many plastic cups and bottles we use, or how much electricity we wasted and how many trees we cut down every year for junk mail.

His intolerable beauty series is also spell binding. See more at

The good news can be found on his E. Pluribus Unum (The Many Become One) work from 2009, which is a gigantic mandala depicting the names of one million organizations around the world that are devoted to peace, environmental stewardship, social justice and the preservation of diverse and indigenous culture. A nice way of showing how we can join the dots.
