"The Globe Shrinks", a multi-channel video installation by Barbara Kruger
I like what this says. I'm pretty sure it's not representative of the work as a whole, since Linda Yablonsky writes on The Moment, "Kruger's perfect calibration of life's crueler ironies performs a kind of miracle, allowing the blind to see all," and while I can see where it's going, that's not what I'm getting from this photo. I wish I had seen the original - wishing I had sat in the dark, closing my eyes, away from it all, for a moment!
I've always like art that literally addresses the viewer, text as art basically. Reminds me a bit of Jenny Holzer, different messages and intents obviously, but nonetheless, here's one of my favorites that's from the MoMA collection I believe.

A while ago the New York Times did an article about the joys of sitting in the window seat on an airplane. Your elbow never gets bumped, and there are some amazing views besides. It's a truly wonderful thing looking out of the window as you're flying through the air—speeding on the way to your destination, yet the world outside seems quiet and unmoving. These were some of my favorite photos taken by readers and included with the article. So brilliant.
