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.
