Keep It All.

The Chinese contemporary artist Song Dong has installed his piece "Waste Not" in the large atrium of the Museum of Modern Art. The large scale piece neatly arranges and displays each and every single item he extracted from his hoarding mother's home. Every article of clothing, every plastic bottle, every button, and every shoe the home contained is stacked and grouped in precise arrangements.

The show, which looks amazing, is on view at MoMA through September 21. Check it out on a Friday night and Target foots your bill, it'll be as crowded as "Waste Not" but it'll be free.
