Graphic Design

Peter is a graphic design genius working  under the label The Luxury Of Protest. This piece is entitled “Everyone ever in the world” and it’s a visual representation of the number of people who have lived versus the one who have been killed in wars, massacre and genocide during the recorded history of humankind. Death is represented by the empty circles, the ones at the top represent the number of conflicts per millennium with more than 1000 deaths, and the circle of text lists them by name. The gaping hole in the center represents every person who died in a major war, genocide, or massacre: approximately 969 million people, or 1.25% of the total number of people who have ever lived on the planet. The total number of people to have lived was estimated through exponential regression calculations based on historical census data and known biological birth rates.
