Intricately Sculpted Rooms Built Inside Old TV Sets


Chinese artist Zhang Xiangxi uses old television sets to create intricately sculpted rooms. The sculptor’s meticulous craftsmanship results in intriguing and unconventional dioramas with a wonderful sense of depth. He manages to not only recreate furniture like desks and beds, but Xiangxi also mirrors the genuine messiness of a real room.

Whether the artist is replicating his parents’ living room, his own chaotic studio, the littered interior of a train car, or his dream home, Xiangxi manages to capture the ambience of each environment. His attention to detail is evident through his line of carefully crafted work, which even uses materials from the objects they are mimicking. The artist says, “I like to closely observe daily life and work out how to make things.”
