Song Dong's Waste Not

Waste Not by Song Dong is a very interesting exhibition. Dong's piece includes about 10,000 items, including pots, shoes, clothes, cans, bottles, televisions, a shelter and even a bed. He mostly used household items that are used for cooking and other items people use every day. What was very interesting about Waste Not is the position Dong puts the items in. He gathered all of household items by their kind. For example, a corner of the room was filled with pots and other part of the room was filled with empty cans and bottles. All the things were placed very neatly together and organized. I believe the artist is trying to show the viewers that we are very materialistic and that we shouldn't be. We should use less things and stop making more waste.
