Art in the Digital Age

I have a box of old floppy disks, loaded with critical data that I needed to save from the early 90’s. I also have a MacBook, and so no way to access any of that important information.

But, thanks to artist Nick Gentry of London, my disks can be saved from the landfill!

Gentry is creating “social art from the obsolete” with his Xchange program. You send him your disks, he makes art with them. And, if you include your address along with your donated disks, he’ll even send you “a gift for your contribution.”
