Waste Not

I took the girls to the MoMa today and saw the Waste Not installation by Song Dong. Song Dong is an artist from China. For nearly 60 years, his mother lived in a tiny house in Beijing. And during this time, she apparently never threw anything away, ever. The Waste Not installation shows a scale model of her house, and displays the entire contents that she accumulated over 60 years. (See here for 16 Miles of String's photostream of the exhibit.)
The house was smaller than my apartment, and it was amazing to me that so many items could have fit into such a small space. But then again, as I look at the piles of crap in my apartment, maybe it isn't so unlikey after all.
