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.

Mattis Dovier has a gift for making GIFs that are both entertaining and gruesome. He balances between GIFs in colour and black and white sketch-like moving images in wonderful detail. Dovier juxtaposes subjects that are jiggling body fat with more sensual GIFs like women applying lipstick or slapping her own behind in repetition. 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.

Sewn Drawings

JessicaWohl_SewnDrawings_6

Tennessee-based trained illustrator Jessica Wohl works in the areas of painting, drawing, installation, collage and performance. She focuses on the concept of home and its residents, aiming to prove that not everything is what it seems by drawing and sewing on family photos. This process questions the representation of domestic perfection and happiness.

The series ‘Sewn Drawing’ uses embroidery to mask the characters on found photography and Wohl sews on them to embody the metaphor of the human need to “keep it together” and prevent life from “ripping apart at the seams”.
