Why, after the great artists,

do people ever try to do anything again? Only because, from generation to generation, through what the great artists have done, the instincts change. And, as the instincts change, so there comes a renewal of the feeling of how can I remake this thing once again more clearly, more exactly, more violently. You see, I believe that art is recording; I think it's reporting.

Waste Not by Song Dong @ MOMA

An interactive piece at MOMA where everyone adds his or her name and height

...and bathroom scrawl at a bar in Brooklyn.

More art at MOMA
