Crunching numbers

There are 6.5 billion people in the world; walking around and occupying, on average, approximately 2 square feet. In an ascetic extreme, any other space is tertiary. In reality, we all leave an ecological footprint that's measured in acres. In the spaces between, we live our lives.

An artist, Michael Wolf, has photographed 100 homes in Hong Kong. Each home measures 10 feet by 10 feet or 100 square feet. The work is called 100 x 100.

Since I've been sick as a dog for the last two days, I don't have the mental capacity to describe what I'm thinking when I look at the images. They do, however, make me think about a lot of things and isn't that what art is supposed to do?
