Floppy Disc Art

tumblr_nazjkkgDjG1qa4iv8o1_500
British artist Nick Gentry uses found objects and contributed artefacts to make mixed media collages. This series uses the now obsolete floppy disk to make paintings, resulting in an archaeological display of digital history to pay homage to the roles old media (such as vintage film negatives, x-rays and microfilm) played in technology. His art is influenced by the development of consumerism, technology, identity and cyberculture in society, with a distinctive focus on obsolete media. He is best known for his floppy disk paintings and film negative artworks, placing an emphasis on recycling obsolete media and the reuse of personal objects as a central theme.

His GIFs intertwine the movement of the human body with action shots as shooting a gun or the impact of a fist hitting a face.
