portraits of mass consumption

a mound of discarded cell phones...

check out chris jordan's intolerable beauty: portraits of mass consumption -

i tend to really dig these types of images - mounds of discarded consumer culture artifacts, spent potential, sloughed off identity markers (as with the cell phones above), etc. not just as an indictment of our disposable, temporary and ephemeral consumer culture, but for their implicit (intrinsic) sadness and hollowness. they're almost hypnotic.
