Turn your TV into abstract art


Don't just let your flat-panel TV just hang there, taking up precious space that could be used to brighten up your home. Affix one of TV2Art's Lightascopes over the TV screen and those electronic signals can start making art instead. The brainchild of artists Daniel Goldstein and John Kapellas, Lightascopes sample light and colour from the TV to create changing patterns and swirls, adding a modern aesthetic accent to the room.

Lightascopes are made of the same lightweight, durable plastic as a credit card and are fixed to the TV screen using micro-suction tape. This makes for easy removal when there's actually something good on TV that you might want to watch instead of your new art piece. The Lightascopes also work when the TV's off.

Lightascopes come in 3 different styles, each creating its own signature pattern. You can try out a selection of light and sound effects before you buy.

Available in sizes 32"-50" for $135-$199. There's also a deluxe version with all 3 styles combined, which goes for a hefty $480.

Kinda cool, but the tightwad in me would be counting the hours spent as art against the estimated life of the panel.

Somehow, I think I'd just opt for conventional, less wasteful art.

These are actually a lot of fun - They're similar (in concept) to the DVDs at http://www.vat19.com , too, depending on the look and price range that you're going for.
