Barbie Dolls, 2008

I love this piece by Chris Jordan.  
Here he uses 32,000 barbies to depict, "the number of elective breast augmentation surgeries performed monthly in the US in 2006."  
Please visit his site to see more of his work, which I had the pleasure of seeing on display in Seattle.  Mr. Jordan uses a variety of goods to visually represent consumerism in the United States.  Powerful & compelling!
