'Cause and Effect' by Do Ho Suh is a ceiling-high tornado create with many little orange men stacked on top of each other. One figurine stands on the ground and holds the weight of thousands upon his shoulders (he must have killer quads). The swirl continues to grow until it hits the roof where it branches off into different directions.

One of Do Ho Suh's purposes with this massive piece of art was to show that there is a strength in the "presence of numerous individuals." As the saying goes, there is power in numbers.

Cause and Effect by Do Ho Suh explores the value of being a part of the collective.
