Cold Dark Matter: An Exploded View by Cornelia Parker. Saw this at The Tate Modern, London and completely fell in love with it. There was so much to see in the actual exhibit and the single lightbulb lighting the room made it almost feel magical with all the shadows on the walls.

Red Dwarf's The Cat: Evolved from a cat that Dave Lister had smuggled aboard Red Dwarf before being put in suspended animation for thousands of years, The Cat exhibits all the self-centeredness and vanity of your typical house cat.
"A realist today must deal with the threat of the bomb, extraordinary materialist and Philistine values, a hypocritical government, and a generally vulgar environment. Consequently, the subject matter of a realist painter must capture the feeling of isolation, the tension of nothing happening. The suspended animation. The frozenness one feels when confronted with this environment." --JR
