Of All the People in All the World

A performer from Stan’s Cafe theatre company stands behind the rice mountain that represents the
population of the USA: one grain = one person
Visual artists love statistics. Remember the vast population models at Pentagram’s Global Cities show at the Tate Modern last year, which were themselves preceded by artist Abigail Reynolds’ card representations of violent crime statistics? Well now the world is being broken down and totted up again, in a new show in Birmingham that uses grains of rice to represent the 6.7 billion of us on the planet. Stan’s Cafe theatre company are behind Of All the People in All the World, a touring exhibition where a whopping 112 tonnes of rice has been used to replicate a whole range of statistics. Click through for a few examples and for details on the show, then check out the whole Flickr set for the project, here.
