Are you one of those sentimental hoarders who can’t bear to throw away old, non-functional junk? Here’s an idea for what you can do with those old devices that you just can’t use anymore.
Malaysian artist Liu Zhenfeng honors electronic devices of old by immortalising them neatly in clear frames.
Instead of simply keeping them in a box in some dark, musty corner of the house, or throwing them away like trash, Liu Zhenfeng pays homage to these nostalgic devices by deconstructing and disassembling the parts and then rearranging and designing them in a way that is aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
Some of the nostalgic devices Zhenfeng has worked on include old iPhone models, classic Nokia phones, Gameboys, Tamagotchis and more! Just look at these works of art:
To frame one of your old devices, all you have to do is drop Zhenfeng a DM @theexploded2.0, select your frame size and colour, make payment and you’re good to go! Prices aren’t fixed, but as a gauge for how much these one-of-a-kind pieces cost, a deconstructed iPod Touch goes for RM259, while various other deconstructed devices are priced anywhere between RM280-349.
