Got a stack of old floppy disks gathering dust in your home? How about x-rays? Want to discard them but you don’t know how and where? Well, you might find this of interest! Read on!
London-based artist Nick Gentry's body of work involves materials that have been contributed by other individuals.
According to Gentry, this process is a way for “contributor, artist and viewer come closer together”.
He is currently on the lookout for individuals who might want to contribute used floppy disks and x-rays to use for his future artworks. So if you are interested in getting rid of those unwanted materials, and at the same time, take part in a creative process, then this is the perfect chance! You can find the details here and you can take a look at his archive over at Flickr.
“As a social art project, your participation and contributions are a vital part of the creative process. The history and rich variety of memories contained in your old objects forms the main subject of each piece.” – Nick Gentry
He’s also asking for used film negatives, but I doubt any of use would be willing to part with it!
