Zhang Xiangxi reuses old television box sets to create several television displays that serve as dioramas of his life.

The Chinese artist recycled old box television sets that showcases the several living environments that he was once a part of. The dioramas feature the places were Xiangxi once worked and lived in -- one of the dioramas even showcases his "dream home." Xiangxi removes all the parts from the box set and replaces them with sculptures of miniature furniture and TVs. The creations were made to showcase his life and not an abstract representation of anything.

The artist encapsulates his past lives in TV, something that many celebrities can relate to and it's something that many regular people would like to come to fruition. Stats for Life Re-Created Dioramas Trending: Older & Chilly
