Consumption Plates by Demian Repucci

I’m a real infographic and data visualization junkie, so I was very excited to see these amazing plates by designer Demian Repucci. I like to think that these are what Edward Tufte eats his meals off of. Each of the four plates in Demian’s collection are decorated with graphs depicting various aspects of global food consumption. These will make you think twice about leaving any food on your plate! Below are closeups of each plate and Demian’s descriptions of the graphs. Be sure to look at demianrepucci.com to see more great work!

.

Plate 1: Average Calories Per Capita Per Day: “A graph of rings showing the average daily calorie intake per capita of various countries and the proportional relationship between them.”

.

Plate 2: Average daily fresh water use: “A graph showing the average daily fresh water use of various countries and the proportional relationship between them.  The dotted line denotes the water poverty line.”

.

Plate 3: U.S. Federal Food Subsides and U.S. Recommended Daily Nutrition Requirements: “One graph showing the proportion of U.S. Federal Subsidies allotted to each major food group.  The other graph showing the proportion of the U.S. Federal Daily Nutritional Recommendations of servings of each of the major food groups.  The two graphs together allow a comparison of the discrepancy between what the government suggests we eat and what the government pays to be grown.”

.

Plate 4: Obese Population and Undernourished Population: “One graph showing the population percentage of each country that is considered obese, having a Body Mass Index of 30 or greater.  The other graph showing the percentage of each country that is considered undernourished.”
