A project by Yann Arthus-Bertrand in collaboration with Sibylle d’Orgeval and Baptiste Rouget-Luchaire, 6 Billion Others presents interviews of 6,000 people, filmed in 84 countries, around the same questions about their dreams, their hardships, their hopes, their fears etc..
The website created by The Blast Machine reveals a selection of 300 of these portraits in an interactive mosaic while the website’s visitors can also leave their contributions via webcam, sound recording or text. Other participatory functions included the possibility to translate the content into the language of their choice or to leave comments.
The project was exhibited for the first time at the Grand Palais in Paris in January 2009, and went on to tour in a dozen countries. Meanwhile, the name of the project has changed to 7 billion Others…
