British artist Nick Gentry's paintings give long-forgotten floppy disks a new lease on life. They're still storage media, just in a much more literal sense.

At some point recently, you've probably uncovered an old box of videos, cassettes, and floppies in the basement and thought to yourself, "what am I supposed to do with these?" It turns out you just weren't thinking hard enough.
