Samson is a museum installation by Chris Burden. It is made of a 100-ton jack, a gear box and a turnstile. Each time when a visitor enters the gallery space and passes through the turnstile, the jack connected to the gear box expand a little and pushes against the walls. So when a certain amount of people visit the exhibition, it is possible that the walls could collapse.
