Faces on Floppy: Artworks by Nick Gentry

Inspired by the sociological impact of internet culture, Nick Gentry paints beautiful portraits onto obsolete media formats, such as old floppy disks. His work is a comment on waste culture, but also makes parallels between the personal info locked beneath the paint and the way in which humankind is becoming so closely integrated with technology.  Image via Nick Gentry
