Nick Gentry Paints Art On Floppy Disks (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

First Posted: 06/29/11 05:36 AM ET   Updated: 08/28/11 06:12 AM ET

Nick Gentry is a talented artist who just so happens to use floppy disks as his canvas. Gentry recycles outmoded technology into works of art. He doesn't conceal his material, he revels in the words and textures. Notes from previous owners peek through the paint, the history of the disks is as much what Gentry is celebrating as the subjects he depicts.

Gentry is a Central St. Martin's grad who has used both floppy disks and VHS tapes in his work. His painting are at once archaeological and haunting.

Check out his work below.
