Step aside guitar dollhouses, vacuum cleaner condos, and bookshelf apartments: there's a new brand of crazy miniature in town, one where swanky duplexes and grungy studios fill up the guts of old televisions. Chinese artist Zhang Xiangxi has made a living building realistic dioramas inside cathode ray tube TV sets (along with refrigerators, washing machines, and more), crafting familiar scenes like his parents' sitting room, his messy studio, and a commuter train car, complete with dusty floorboards, exposed brick, and fluorescent lighting. Have a look, below.
Four of Xiangxi's pieces will be on display at the 55th Venice Biennale from June 1 to Nov. 24.
