Benjamin Yates makes coffee tables that house miniature cities made from discarded gadgets and electronic parts. He also fills them with fairy lights and railroad figures of people to bring life to the cities. One man’s trash is a little man’s territory.
As you’ll see in the gallery below some of the electronics that Yates uses are still functional, like a digital photo frame that now acts like a giant billboard. Yates also mentioned that one of his Electri-Cities has a working CD player and speakers.
Do you see a utopia or a dystopia when you look at the Electri-Cities? You can see a video and more pictures of the Electri-Cities on Yates’ website.
