I feel as though it’s a bit poetic that just mere hours after writing about the Apple iPad, I am now writing about Nick Gentry’s floppy disc paintings. ‘How so,’ you ask? Well, the former is paving the way for technology while the latter has been made obsolete, simply put.
Utilizing both floppy discs and video tapes, Nick Gentry not only gives these items a second life, he does so in quite a unique and beautiful way.
