In this beautifully simple performance installation, Stan’s Cafe bring five tons of rice to the World Financial Center, a grain for everyone in the USA. Over the course of two weeks, a team of performers will weigh this rice out into an array of human statistics. When brought together to create a shifting sculptural landscape, these hills and mountains start to tell powerful stories of the world, its struggles, challenges and triumphs. Of All The People In All The World has captivated audiences around the world by humanizing formally abstract statistics and transforming the way people see the world. Photo Credit: Graeme Rose
