Portrait Art Using Obsolete Material by Nick Gentry

Nick Gentry is a London based artist who is best known for his work using obsolete material such as floppy disks and film negatives. The result is hauntingly beautiful portraiture.

It is clear from his social art work that he makes a profound statement about consumerism and technology.  Recycling floppy disks as he does not just stops the obsolete media from going into landfills, but demonstrates how something lovely can be created from unwanted material. Also fascinating is the connection he makes between identity and cyberculture.
