“Each floppy disk used in the paintings has a history and story of its own. It represents the increasing pace of the modern life cycle, where objects are created, used and disposed of quicker than ever. To challenge this notion, as these personal artefacts of life are cast aside, the obsolete are now given new life and a renewed purpose by using them as a medium for art.” @ GENTRY – About

I’m subscribed to some mailing lists, which causes my mail to be permanently filled with information, very often useless stuff that goes straight to the trash bin, but some particular mails never disappoint me whenever I get time to check them properly.

Wooster Collective is one of those good examples, and through one of their mails I got to know the work of Nick Gentry, an artist that uses obsolete objects in his paintings, making something really out of the ordinary. The concept he exposes is pretty simple, but still leaves one thinking about the crazy evolving process of technology and how it just keeps producing an unmeasurable amount of obsolete items everyday.

More fresh works in the website below. Really worth checking.
