All you can eat

Wealth distribution statistics are very abstract for most people. All you can eat is intended to give people a playful and more intuitive access to such facts. Furthermore, the work should make it tangible that small advantages at the beginning can be more important than constant hard work.

All you can eat achieves this in the form of an interactive game for 2-8 people with minimalistic design and few simple rules. A positive feedback-loop ensures an unbalanced outcome. As such, this deep space 8K installation quickly brings out feelings of superiority as well as frustration. The outcome is compared to real wealth statistics. Multiple runs with varying intensity of the positive feedback-loop offers opportunities to reflect on one’s own point of view.
