Tea On The Square

I really loved its stunning visualisation of life by numbers in The Human Footprint.

Have you ever wondered what it would look like if all the things you produce and consume in your lifetime were piled up outside your door? All your clothes, all your electrical goods, all your worldly goods laid out before you? This remarkable film tells the story of an average life, a 2,475,576,000 seconds journey from the cradle to the grave. revealing the extraordinary impact that each of our lives has on the world around us. It is the story of our human footprint. [Touch]

I wish they showed those images in the Human Footprint Calculator. There are some numbers and images available online. How did they lay out 75,000 cups of tea in Trafalgar Square? Watch this.
