Cai Guo-Qiang

Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang's "Head On". Exhibition's from awhile ago, but it's something that particularly resonates with me right now. Pictured above are a pack of wolves launching head-on into invisible barriers, their efforts doomed from the start. In this particular installation, the wolves get back onto their feet, suggesting they're caught in a vicious cycle of blindly trusting their (equally-ignorant) leaders & going all-out, only to get smacked down again, unaware of every crushing blow that lies ahead.

Sally Mann - "Immediate Family"

Two of my favorite images taken by American photographer Sally Mann. I love them for their honesty. Nothing manicured, primped, or cheesy.

Pretty sweet interactive music video - Cold War Kids (click here to check it out)
This is the first interactive music video I've seen. It gives you the ability to control what parts of the music you hear by clicking on each band-member.
