Nick Gentry

Using obsolete media formats, Nick Gentry creates art using floppy disks transformed into portraits that are at times both alluring and alienating. He uses this media as a way to explore how humankind is integrating with technology while also making a comment on waste culture, life cycles and identity. There is a certain voyeuristic appeal to his work with the female subjects appearing sexy and the males looking a bit ominous and robotic. Whichever way you look at it, you can't deny the originality and clever use of this out of date data format which makes us more than a little nostalgic.
