The Ron Mueck stuff is fairly disturbing.
Couple additions, one musical and one literary.
Now, who shall I marry the junky or the jailer?
Your choices are few when you know you're a failure
But there's one thing that everyone in the bar agrees
That misery loves company
And that's why everyone loves me
Mark Danielewski's House
of Leaves is pervasively paranoid. Highly recommended.
A page from the novel:
I lied. I have a third addition. One of my favorite paintings, Holbein's "The Ambassadors." The ambassadors themselves, with their machinations and intrigue, inspire a good deal of paranoia, but moreover is the absurd, almost profane distorted skull through the middle which the rest of the image totally fails to acknowledge, so to speak. Am I imagining it? What the fuck is it doing? Does everyone else see it? It inspires those sorts of paranoid questions.
Re seanchai, I believe that earlier in the thread I mentioned Deus Ex, which was of course created by essentially the same team (most notably Warren Spector) as SS2. Great games.
