Of All the People in the World.

Visual artists love statistics. A new show in Birmingham UK uses grains of rice to represent the 6.7 billion of us on planet Earth. Stan’s Cafe theatre company presents Of All the People in All the World, a touring exhibition where a whopping 112 tonnes of rice was been used to replicate a whole plethora of statistics. The show is too extensive to write about but luckily the entire thing can be seen in a Flickr set, here.
