Help me find an old Mefi post. Hours of searching the archives has been fruitless!

I remember a post regarding a series of photographs of perhaps China, Korea, Cambodia or some other Asian country which depicts people living in tiny 50 square foot studios (I don't remember the exact number). The pictures (there were dozens) all showed the residents sitting in the middle of these incredibly cramped single rooms, with their entire lives all around them. I think it was China, but I have been searching through the MeFi archives and am exhausted. Someone out there must remember these photos and can help me find them again! I'm 99.9% sure I saw this on the MeFi blue, but it was a while ago, perhaps a year or more. I don't remember if it was a single photographer or just a compilation of common photographs. I can't imagine the post was deleted.

Searching for "micro living"?

I seem to remember something like, except for the Asian part. This? (Link doesn't work, so don't know if any are in China)

Oh wait, now I remember exactly which one you were talking about. It had an old Hong Kong woman sitting in her place.

There is no fruit in the archive! Only spoons!

What's depressing is my rather expensive flat in London is only about twenty sq feet bigger than these.

No, really.
