Of Boobs and Barbies




This is an artist's representation of the 32,000 elective breast augmentation surgeries performed every month in the United States.

Check out Chris Jordan's Running the Numbers: An American Self-Portrait for more amazing statistical artwork!

And thanks to my chum, Jacques, for bringing this to my attention!

Wow! I posted on my blog about this same exhibit sometime last summer... I was totally floored by it! There are some new ones that weren't around last summer though (the barbies and a couple of others) thanks for the link.

Every time I fly in an airplane I think of those jet trails.......

I'd love to see a full-scale installation of this!

When I heard you were looking for boob pix, I almost sent you a self-portrait.

Wow, that's just amazing. What a humorous medium. I have am happy to have discovered a new blog.

That is actually really fascinating artwork! And yes -- a full-scale installation would be fascinating.

Thanks,
