Artist Troels Carlsen likes playing with his skeletons. Fortunately, he plays with mini replicas of real skeletons and not the skeletons in his closet. Known for his monkey art, this artist creates art installations that are an interesting divergence.

Based in Copenhagen, Denmark, artist Troels Carlsen proves that he is fascinated with everything involving the human condition and art history. In this case, his skeletal dioramas delve into the concepts of past versus present, life versus death and dream versus reality; they endeavor to explore the meaning of life. He says, "The dying are desperate for more time and the bored have too much on their hands. In between these two extremes lies the narrative in my work."
