[my inspiration and motivation for this monday]
1: Ai Weiwei’s Cube Light (top right) is on my must-see list this winter and I cannot wait to view this gorgeous glass cube in person. “Ai Weiwei: According to What?” runs at the Hirshhorn in Washington DC until February 24, 2012.

2: These dioramas by Lori Nix totally blew my mind this past week. Each diorama takes her about seven months to build and photograph, which she captures with an 8×10 medium format camera. The detail is so intricate. Really amazing. Via Booooooom.
