How To Name a Planet-Sucking Gas Guzzler

My comedian friend Cary Odes likes to point out how many monster SUVs are named after the parts of the world they are destroying, such as the Toyota Tundra, or the GMC Yukon Denali.

Well, it turns out a Seattle artist named Chris Jordan has also noted that irony, and found a way to visualize it…with a picture of Denali itself, composed of thousands of Yukon logos.

He has lots of other similar work–"running the numbers," as it were–on Orion this month.

  1. Good point. It mirrors the practice here in Florida of naming the housing development for the flora and fauna it just obliterated. Examples: Eagle Creek, Victoria Pines, Evington at Panther Trace to name a few…when do you suppose was the last time anybody at Panther Trace actually SAW one in their neighborhood?
