The bigger picture: not just chairs

 This is a remarkable work of art created by using 1,550 wooden chairs piled high between two buildings in Istanbul, Turkey. Artist Doris Salcedo, who displayed the work in 2003, said her aim was to create a "topography of war" - not a specific conflict, but war in general - and to explore the way that war and daily life are intertwined.
