Statistical Rice Show!

What a beautiful way to present statistics!

From the exhibit website: Of All The People In All The World
Of All The People In All The World uses grains of rice to bring abstract statistics to life via exhibitions worldwide. Each grain of rice represents one person.

Over a period of days a team of performers carefully weigh out quantities of rice to represent a host of human statistics in the form of groupings. Some are serious, some not so much.
Some examples include:
- the populations of towns and cities
- the number of doctors, the number of soldiers
- the number of people born each day, the number who die
- all the people who have walked on the moon
- deaths in the holocaust
They have a flickr set here and a good post here! via
