Cellular behaviour

I have a stream of constantly updated figures and i would very much like to generate a group of cell like structures for each figure. The larger the figure the more cells etc etc.

When the figures change i would like certain things to happen,

If a figure decreases and another increases i would like the cells to almost breakaway and join up with another group of cells to show this change in figures.

Is there a simple way to create this relationship between cells?

Thank you.
