UK artist Nick Gentry is well known for creating fantastic art installations using contributed artifacts and materials, like there brilliant Floppy Disk portraits made up of the 3 ½ disks that used to be essential in our lives, but are now obsolete.
This video montage of his work entitled “Social Art From The Obsolete” gives the viewer a close-up look at some of his masterpieces. You can see his meticulous attention to detail and you even get to see which floppy’s make up the works, perhaps recognizing some of the games that you once owned yourself.
Gentry is a graduate of Central St Martins and has exhibited his work in the UK, U.S and in various European states. He says that his art is influenced by “the development of consumerism, technology and cyberculture in society, with a distinctive focus on obsolete media.”
I’m quite intrigued to see what he could create with a bunch of old typewriters!
