These 10,000 iron cut-outs are from the Jewish Museum in Berlin. The architect designed this room with a purpose. When you walk on the faces (imagine) they grind together in a shriek/scream of metal against metal. The walking is difficult and uncomfortable to your feet—the combination of noise and discomfort being the point of this particular space. The room itself is a cold, lonely slab of concrete. It achieves everything the architect wanted it to. This is but one of many fascinating things to see at this museum.

You Get The Point
This is in the Jewish Museum in Berlin, a fascinating place which is more about the culture than the Holocaust . . . except for this. You're supposed to walk on them, but I couldn't do it. They clank when you do.
