I wanted to picture how much stuff we make in a year, but it was too big. So I reduced it to just one second. Each image depicts the world wide production of a selected commodity, per second, for the year 2009.
Constructed in 3D modelling programs, printed as photographs, each is statistically and mathematically accurate. The exact number per second is in the title You can multiply by 31,556,926 (number of seconds in a year) to get the annual totals.
One second, more - but how can there always be more?
