This series of collaged portraits by British artist Nick Getty sheds light on modern and dated technology simultaneously. By digitally altering a collection of obsolete technology (floppy disks), Getty creates brilliant headshot portraits of men and women.

He took the old school floppy disks and collaged them together to act as an overlay.The transparent disk overlay enhances the portraits and overall, makes them look like droids of the future. It is amazing that he can take something old and transform it to have a futuristic appeal.

The collection of pictures boasts an array of colors and textures, along with retro accents and of course, surreal appeal. Upon a close glance you can even see the white labels on the floppy disks and read their original purposes.
