Running the Number- Photography of the Environment

The film "An Inconvenient Truth" brought the environmental issues to the world's attention. CommonWealth Magazine quoted a US NOAA report in an article published last year discussing the issues of  global warming, which indicates that the winter of 2006 was the warmest winter on Earth since 1880 (the beginning of documentation) and, in the winter months of early 2008, the world was struck by cold disasters due to the La Niña effect. The Earth has been sending out signals to mankind.  As a center for social education, the National Science and Technology Museum teams up with the National Geographic Channel to launch the educational film exhibition on the eve of the 2008 World Earth Day targeting on the environmental issues. For details regarding the World Earth Day series events organized by National Geographic Channel, please visit http://www.ngc.com.tw. [About the Exhibition] ★ A self-portrait of an American "Running the Numbers" is a series of photography works discussing the environmental issues and reflecting contemporary American culture through the simple and original forms of numbers. Each photo expresses an issue through presentation of a certain amount of a certain object. For examples, 410 thousand paper cups are used in every 15 minutes and 106 thousand aluminum cans are used in every 30 seconds. This series of photography works examines the bizarre phenomena behind the huge numbers. The artist uses thousands of thumbnail images to create a complex mosaic of a large image. The desires hiding inside of the images highlights the role of each individual in society and because of which, our society becomes enormous, hard to understand and unbearable. This Photography Exhibition aims to raise public interest in environmental issues to encourage people to become involved in the actions. ★Running the Number Photography Exhibition Seventeen large image works are created from millions of objects we use every day.
