Hey, flist?

This question is for everyone, not just icon-makers.

If you were trying to find a way to express:

(1) "semi-dysfunctional and getting nowhere fast"
(2) "going around in circles til both parties go mad"

through icons, how would you do it? Munch's painting "The Scream" might work for the second one (it would be better, of course, if there were two figures in the painting, not just one), but are there other ways to do it? And what about (1)? I'm not sure whether to go looking for text icons, figurative art, abstract art, etc. I'd love to have some input here. *asks nicely*

I'd go for art, just because the icon is the only visual element in what is already a bunch of text, and art is generally more open for interpretation than a quote of some sort. What art, I'm not really sure, though Nighthawks might work for the first one.

Thanks for the feedback!
