Plastic Figurines Holding Up Floor

 Great art piece of thousands of plastic figurines holding up the floor.
"One of the most exciting contemporary artists of our time, Korean Do Ho Suh, created this large sculptural installation that doesn't look like much until you come closer. Glass plates rest on thousands of multicolored miniature plastic figures who are crowded together with their heads and arms turned skyward. Together, they are holding the weight of the individual visitor who steps onto the floor."- My Modern Met

I find this communal in the group working to hold up the floor while others might find it sad or erie.  Almost as though they'll be crushed if they don't bear the weight.
