    Wow! These are so strangely beautiful.

  • Marina

    The best ideas are the ones so simple they make you ache with how you didn’t think of it. All those times I’ve turned off my crappy tv…

  • Dave

    wow, this is awesome!

  • defuca

    The TV as subject matter is really interesting. To me, turning off the TV represents the face of reality. Catch my drift?

  • Awesome concept and awesome execution!

  • mp

    TRON!

  • These are lovely, I really like how abstract they look… would never have guessed they were televisions!

  • Karen

    Wow–gorgeous!

  • Benbenbenbenbenbenben

  • CMYKboy

    New interpretation of Dan Flavin. Like it.

  • emily

    wow…i remember sitting and turning the TV off over and over again as a small child trying to get a better look at that moment exactly. Not only does tha make these really satisfying, but they are also beautiful.

  • very nice concept =)

  • Luc Nagel

    kind of reminds me of this music video made by Tom Jenkinson AKA Squarepusher: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=isb7MztEbB8

  • Very similar to the 2005 photographic work by the Australian artist Kenzee Patterson where he captures the turning off of the televisions. http://www.kenzeepatterson.com/index.php?row=101&field=09_Photos_image
