Floppy Disk Paintings by Nick Gentry

Published Aug 9, 2011

Using old floppy disks and other obsolete media formats as a canvas for his paintings, Nick Gentry explores the impact of technological advances on our society.

“His portraits use a combination of obsolete media formats, making a comment on waste culture, life cycles and identity. Using old disks as a canvas, these artefacts are combined to create photo-fits and identities that may draw connections to the personal information that is then forever locked down underneath the paint.

This has led to an exploration of the ways in which humankind is integrating with technology. As it reaches a tipping point, this new movement is becoming increasingly apparent as a cultural and social transition of our time. Will humans be forever compatible with our own technology?”
