    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!

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

  • 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 =)
