Message from a Local Performer

A most profound and creative event is taking place on the Wesleyan campus during the next 12 days. Ideally, one will take it in more than once, for the exhibit will continue to evolve.

Of All The People In All The World is a living, changing work of art and theatre, revealing human statistics of interest and concern. The creators hope to make normally impossible-to-imagine statistics TANGIBLE.

The idea was created in the UK by a couple of British actors who go by the name of Stan’s Café, and it is currently touring the planet. The show’s last stop was Barcelona.

This is surely the closest this world traveling exhibit will come to any of us in Connecticut. And it’s well worth the short drive to Wesleyan.

The show is held at the Zilkha Art Gallery at Wesleyan University’s Center for the Arts as part of their year long dedication to issues of global climate change and other relevant subjects.

The show is a fascinating brief walk through various displays of facts, using grains of rice as the unit of measurement to depict human statistics while suggesting connections that exist between and among them.

You, the visitor, can even bring your own set of statistics (if reliably sound and true) to the show and, possibly, they will be added to the display while you’re there. The gentlemen (all from the UK) particularly
welcome statistics relating to our lives here in our own locale, Connecticut. If they can be authenticated, they can be added to the show.

This is an intelligent, creative living exhibit–which will enlighten and provoke. You and your students, colleagues, family, and friends should be among All The People In All The World who visit this important show.

Your visit can be as short or as long as you’d like. You can spend as few as ten to fifteen minutes among the displayed groupings of rice piles and titles or as much time as you’d like at the Gallery show–to take in the significance of it all.

And it is free to the public.

  1. The description of the exhibit “Of All The People In All The World” at Wesleyan University’s Zilkha Art Gallery sounds truly captivating and thought-provoking. The concept of using grains of rice as a unit of measurement to depict human statistics is both unique and powerful. It’s inspiring to see how the creators, Stan’s Café, have taken normally abstract and unimaginable statistics and made them tangible through their living artwork.

    The fact that visitors can contribute their own statistics, particularly those related to our local community in Connecticut, adds an interactive and personal touch to the exhibit. It’s an opportunity to engage with the art and connect our own lives to the broader themes and connections being explored.

    The dedication of the Center for the Arts at Wesleyan University to issues like global climate change and relevant subjects is commendable. Exhibitions like this provide a platform for education, discussion, and reflection on important societal issues.

  6. Buying gold or any other major currency in online games is a common process, and Diablo IV is no exception. Gold in Diablo 4 helps you do a lot of things, including repairing, crafting, buying items from other players, unlocking challenges, and more. Gold will always be needed, and there is never “enough” of it. Growing it can take a lot of time, and you have to know some specific strategies to be effective, which is not as simple as it sounds.
