Obsolete floppy disks and VHS tapes turned into art

VHS tapes, floppy disks and cassette tapes are largely redundant in 2018 as more of our photos, videos and documents are stored on hard drives or on websites.

But one artist is making use of these obsolete technologies by turning them into art.

Nick Gentry takes discarded tech and makes something to preserve an important historical moment.

The artist hopes his work helps to communicate the feeling of time passing, which he thinks is a "really difficult thing to describe" with words alone.

The work will be on show at the Opera Gallery in central London until the 28 September.
