The exhibit “Of All The People in All The World” is traveling the world to show all the people exactly how many of them there are by using rice. Sometimes it’s hard to get your mind around millions and billions of humans and their varying statistics. By representing each person as a single piece of rice this showcase helps people understand varying numbers such as how many people have walked on the moon and the population of the United States (pictured). See link for more in depth video.
The show adapts to its setting: the country, city and building it is in. The amount of rice used varies according to which version is performed, Of All The People In All The World: UK is a standard small version using 1,000Kg of rice to represent 60,000,000 people. Of All The People In All The World: Europe at 12,000Kg is an example of a medium size version. So far there has been a single presentation of Of All The People In All The World in which the whole world's population was represented by 104 tons of rice in Stuttgart.
