Nick Gentry: Floppy Disk Paintings
Nick Gentry has created a new medium for floppy disks that have been cast aside like all technology that becomes obsolete. Below is his interpretation:
Each floppy disk used in the paintings has a history and story of its own. It represents the increasing pace of the modern life cycle, where objects are created, used and disposed of quicker than ever. To challenge this notion, as these personal artefacts of life are cast aside, the obsolete are now given new life and a renewed purpose by using them as a medium for art.
