'In 1897, Alexander Graham Bell was elected president of the National Geographic Society and wanted to produce a magazine that appealed to a wide range of people, not just the scientific elite – and he insisted on 'pictures, and plenty of them – the world and all that is in it, is our theme, and if we can't find anything to interest ordinary people in that subject, we better shut up shop and become a strict, technical, scientific journal for the high class geographers and geological experts.' Hirst's installation 'the world and all that is in it' echoes and applauds this ambition by looking at the relationships between language, image and happenstance.'
