Of All the People in All the World

Of all the people in the world (Karen Stafford)

Direct from the UK, this provocative installation uses grains of rice to bring abstract statistics to life. A team of performers weighs out quantities of rice to represent a host of human statistics including populations of towns and cities, the number of doctors and number of soldiers, the number of people born each day and number who die, and the number of people who have walked on the moon. Witty, at times shocking, and always thought-provoking, this ever-changing landscape of rice will engage students of all ages, causing them to reflect on their own place in the world.
