Skull photo mosaic made from packs of cigarettes

Artist Chris Jordan creates big art that "looks at contemporary American culture through the austere lens of statistics". This 72" x 98" piece (based on a painting by Van Gogh) entitled "Skull With Cigarette, 2007" "depicts 200,000 packs of cigarettes, equal to the number of Americans who die from cigarette smoking every six months."Click here to see more from his "Running The Numbers" series.
