Overview

Twenty-two bright orange foam figures float together in a group, symbolizing the
many refugees worldwide who risk peril to seek safety and freedom. Wind and
currents move the figures, making them even more lifelike and seemingly vulnerable.
The United Nations estimates that there are approximately 21.3 million refugees
around the world. Each figure represents one million of those refugees.
