There was so much in Second Lives, the opening show at the Museum of Art And Design in New York, that we barely scratched the surface when we saw it at the opening. BoingBoing reminds us of it with posting of Courtney Smith's Psiche Complexo,

"several pieces of early twentieth century Brazilian bedroom furniture, ...The individual elements are cut and rebuilt in order to fold and collapse into one central body so that they may be occulted withing the containing for or unfolded into an environment."

It is a terrific show, a must for anyone interested in the art of recycling. If you are in New York, see it before it's gone.
