Techy Media Art

Wednesday, 7 March 2012 0 comments
Creative and super talented Nick Gentry is a British artist that graduated in Central St Martins 
(so jealous!
) and has his work exhibited in the UK, USA and Europe. As part of a generation, I mean, our generation that grew up surrounded by floppy disks, VHS tapes, polaroids and cassettes, he is inspired by the sociological impact of a new internet culture.
His portraits combine pretty old media formats, making a comment on waste culture, life cycles and identity. Using old disks as a canvas, these artefacts are put together in order to create photo-fits and identities that may draw connections to the personal information that is then forever locked down underneath the paint.
“This has led to an exploration of the ways in which humankind is integrating with technology. As it reaches a tipping point, this new movement is becoming increasingly apparent as a cultural and social transition of our time. Will humans be forever compatible with our own technology”?

“Modern technology owes ecology an apology”. Alan M. Eddison
