Mountains of floppy disks, VHS tapes, polaroids and cassettes. This combination of media played a massive part in how a generation growing up in the 1980s and 1990s learned about the world.

As media is rapidly absorbed into the World Wide Web, the physical media formats of the past have been deemed obsolete. This represents a big shift away from real world objects, driving towards a human existence that is ultimately governed by countless intangible data files.

The paintings in this book seek to simply highlight a new movement, which is becoming increasingly apparent as an important cultural and social transition of our time. Will humans be forever compatible with our own technology?

All proceeds will go to Oxfam, a global movement of people working with others to overcome poverty and suffering.
