"waste not"

Went to moma yesterday to check this exhibit by an artist called song dong. To make a long story short, song dong was born in Beijing on the eve of the cultural revolution. Mother came from a wealthy family whose relative was jailed as an anti-communist spy. Parents adhered to the cultural revolutionary dictum of frugality in daily. Let’s just say that the mother somewhat over did it. When the mother died in 2006, song dong decided, instead of destroying what his late mother has collected, he decided to lay it all out as art exhibit. Believe it or not, the mother supposed stacked everything into the tiny shack that can be seen in the first picture.
