This crowd of people is part of a swarm sculpture that consists of hundreds of tiny, detailed human figures scattered across several walls. They look like people crossing the street in a city during rush hour, or perhaps a human exodus of shrink ray victims. Let's take a closer look.

These strange little figures are made of oil paint, emulsion, pigments, ash, and mud. They're the work of South African artist Clinton De Menezes, who says:

Working in a variety of media and materials, my current work is an attempt to conjure up ‘landscapes' that are positioned somewhere between utopian dreamscapes and fractured dystopian geographies.
