Song Dong at MoMA

I went to MoMA with Kathy to see a show by Belgian painter James Ensor. Ensor's work was weirder and more beautiful than I expected. While we were there we saw an installation Waste Not by Chinese artist Song Dong. It is the entire contents of his mother's house, neatly arranged in a grid-like fashion with other objects sorted by color and function. I really loved this piece. Then I went home and looked at my piles of stuff- do you think they would look better in a grid?

Given all your great stuff, I think it would be a good show, Jody. Then imagine doing it for 60 W Cayuga!

I was thinking of doing it for 60 W. Cayuga St. I think it would take up 2 floors of the museum.
