Artist Creates Miniature Dioramas Inside Discarded Televisions
Repurposing the empty frames of discarded televisions, artist Zhang Xiangxi creates meticulously crafted dioramas inspired by “real life” in present day China. Some of the miniatures closely resemble Zhang's own personal living experiences such as his old workspace in Guangzhou, the workers' dormitory he once lived in and his parent’s sitting room. "When you look at the work from a distance, it seems like the two-dimensional image broadcast on a television." Zhang explains, "It is only when you get closer up to observe it, that the picture becomes three-dimensional."
