The Animal Kill Counter
The Animal Kill Counter
2013

The Animal Kill Counter counts in real time the number of animals killed for food worldwide. The names of the animals were removed, as I am making a point about the intersection of capitalism and sentient life. The rapidly rising numbers signify not only the death of the animals but also Wall Street and the money made through sacrifice.

The statistics are based on 2007 statistics from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations' Global Livestock Production and Health Atlas. As these numbers increase every year, current numbers are sadly, considerably higher.
